Soggy March is gone, frost is laying low and it was time to spend a weekend shaking out the cobwebs of winter. The pop-up greenhouse was emptied, plants were installed, weeds were pulled and Dahlia tubers were planted . Busy !
These are part of the take from the SF Garden Show last weekend. Admirable restraint was shown. I am particulary taken with Senecio crassissimus 'Lavender Steps' on the right of this group.
Security was breached in the greenhouse. Though the frost protection was admirable, it appears I provided winter browseing fodder for the snails . This was a full-up pot of Kalanchoe in October. Vengance will be mine.
Apparently they prefer only certain Echeverias.
Only a few bites out of the Aeoniums. Perhaps they were just an appetizer prior to the Kalanchoe-ian main course.
A week is a long time in gardening
