So exciting! I love how weird those fruits are. We already know they sprout fairly easily. What remains to be seen is whether or not I can successfully grow them in the garden. Fingers crossed for this season being the winningest!

Here’s the new bloom stalk on the Gasteraloe that I mentioned last week.

I like the colors but the blooms don’t get much more exciting than that. Which is fine, because the flower stalk itself was pretty exciting news.

In other news, the lemons on my tree still look like limes:

Ripen already! The anticipation may kill me. Haha, not really – I’ll be as patient as it takes to have fresh lemons from the foyer.

And finally, outside, the Firecracker Penstemon (grown from seeds that Ginny Burton sent me) is looking amazing:

I love that bright splash of red in my yard. Especially with the lingering purple Irises and the yellow Spanish Broom nearby – great colors together.

That’s all the plant news that’s fit to print for now. I’ll have more plant stuff for ya tomorrow, hope to see you back here.
