Hi there, from sunny Los Angeles! I love the beautiful close-ups of your plants. I'm actually going to post more plant info on my own blog because of you. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the good work.

Great photos! I'm curious as to your temperature ranges there, since you can grow Agave americana.

hello violet. the daylilies are blooming here in Canada too right now. you have got some really interesting plants there. I tagged you on my blog today. join the fun if you can but don't feel you have to.

@ Brenda: if you're impressed, than we're honoured, both the cheeky Kristy cat and me

@ William: you're very welcome and just for the record, your visit and comment was just as much an inspiration for me

@ Aiyana: actually I have been a bit cheeky disguising the fact (on the photo) that the Agave in question is actually growing in pot and overwinters indoors (lol). Even though I had an outdoor growing larger specimen on the southern slope of my backyard a few years ago, but when we were building a new fence and had the construction workers digging about, it mysteriously vanished. They grow wild in the south of my country (Mediterranean climate) for the winters are quite mild, while here in the continental part, it is said to be quite hard for this specie to survive the long, harsh and cold winters. My grandma succeeded but I dare not plant this one outside. Our summers are quite scorching and dry (especially now) but the winter is a killer although with the climate these days, I think in the near future, I'll be able to grow less hardy specimens. Thanks for your visit and interest. Cheers!

@ Irena: oh the tagging plague continues! LOL. I have already done a similar meme recently but just for the honour you did me by tagging my pretty self (lol) I will spill out some more beans. Soon. I've had quite a scare with my dog getting seriously ill but luckily the rough times seem to be behind us now. I'll try and do this anytime soon...

Wonderful plants Violet. I LOVE the tropicals. I'm very partial to them.
