Baby Slippers: Flower of the Day, June 25, 2018

Contrary to what you might think, not related to Lady Slippers.  Technically not a flower, but couldn’t resist this shot from my friend Gloria’s low entrance wall along her front sidewalk.




For Cee’s Flower of the Day.

        Sorry for being a know-it-all. I promise, I’ve forgotten more things than I remember re/ plants and gardening. Actually, re/ my whole life! But I’m looking out of the window at a burro’s tail so it jogged my memory. I appreciate comments. Promise a moratorium on corrections for awhile, Christine.

        No problem at all. 🙂 I think their leaves are a dusty green, too.
        I actually was given a burro tail, but it was neglected and got bugs, sprayed, left out too long, and is now in such sad shape. — kind of like someone who barely survived a major smashup. Hopefully it will someday look like a burrow tail sedum again.

        I fear that even though they don’t need hardly any water that my gardener underwaters them when I’m gone. My ten year old gorgeous burro tail didn’t survive my last 2 month absence, but I see it has actually grown out again from nothing, just from the nubbins that fell off into the soil. I have it in a human head planter that once again sprouts a full head of flowing hair.

    My sedum has been hanging in there for a year or so, and now I brought home a plant for Mother’s Day that must have had tiny pests on it. They spread to my African Violets, of which I have many. So I’ve just done another major blasting and washing — rough on AVs. Don’t know how much will survive that. 😦

      I don’t think I’ve ever had a pest on succulents..except, perhaps, for snails. A few hair cuttings sprinkled around do them in nicely. They get under their shells and drive them crazy so they exit, pronto.

        This one’s not your fault — but the baby slippers post didn’t come through. I found it because it was a previous post on the bromeliad post. WP sometimes does that, and I’ll just have to remember to make sure I see all of your posts! Janet
