Pup keeps giving me shit…

Yup folks, we are just back from the manure joint!

Today we also picked up a white sapote


A Valencia pride mango


And an allspice tree


Incidentally, the white sapote was named Tree of the Week by The  LA Times today.

In other news our brugmansia is looking more like it should.


The hibiscus is in bloom…


Our roses continue to delight…


As does our wandering jew…


On the fruit front our limes are going for it…


And our grape vines are spreading…

    My god girl ! …. How many Wows can I say to see your fantastic plants here ! We can do Brugmansia plants by seed (I haven’t yet) but seeing the tree was amazing ..and those fruit trees .. that is the benefit of living in such a climate zone .. absolutely wonderful .. now wouldn’t it be something if I could park a few of your plants/trees in my shared space with my neighbor ? LOL
    I’m very jealous indeed ! LOL
