They’re right up the street from us!!! And they came and visited and took pictures and blogged and everything.
So how did we find out about their product? Did we walk right up the street and take a look? No! We went to a trade show in New York and found them there. And then back home here.
What do you think of their stuff?
Found this random photo of a garden planted in a re-up-cycled meter box. I wonder how many of these are now available since the advent of the smart meter?
I wonder what you would think of fancy succulent planters? Would you always like them, like some of them, or hate them all? But wait, don’t answer yet! What if I told you that they were fancy Troll succulent planters and fancy Brick succulent planters. What then?
You say you would first have to see a picture???
Here they go…
The bricks have some Echeverias and a Haworthia too. The trolls are mostly planted with Haworthias, and a Euphorbia too.
Random Cactus cupcakes posting. My sister posted these to my Facebook timeline but I don’t know the original source. Are they for sale? I don’t know! Is there a recipe? Still don’t know. Delicious? I assume so.
Since my sister is vegan, do you think that means these are vegan? Since they were posted on facebook do you think that means they’re viral? Since they’re Cactus do you think I can name all the species?
Common names vary. And yet some just stand out.
Plants are also given names that are sometimes derogatory. Who names them? We don’t know but they become popular! Sansevieria is known as Mother-in-law’s tongue because the tip of its succulent leaf is so prickly…. The pink flowers of Pseudobombax ellipticum resemble a shaving brush and it’s called the Shaving brush flower… Then, there is Crocodile bark, Elephant apple, Monkey’s earpod, Fried egg plant, Bullet wood, Bleeding heart, Bottle brush, Sandpaper, Devil’s tree… it’s a growing list.
Good to know.
