A Motley Bunch of Plants and A Stud Called Spike
My week of gardening continues…
Below are today’s projects – before shots. I hope to be able to do something pretty with them in the next few days.
I have absolutely no idea what is in the cluster of pots (pot luck, ha!). I can see a Swiss Cheese Plant (yes, its actual name – it’s botanical name is even better Monstera deliciosa). I can see a palm (obviously) and a bunch of succulents. I’m totally in love with the cactus boot which also appears to have what is either a weed or a shamrock (which is a weed anyway?) growing with it.
The kickass big cactus at the back, a candelabra cactus I’m told, or Euphorbia, is going in that wooden planter at the front and is going to look rather impressive. His name is Spike (as if I would name a cactus anything else lol) and I’m told he has spent most of his life being a stud cactus in a nursery. Enjoy your retirement in my garden, Spike. I’m sure you’ve earned it.
