Kalanchoe Watch 2010

Well, I have been obsessively watching the Kalanchoes - waiting as patiently as I can to see them bloom. So far, they have not yet, but they are getting close. The Fantastic's are turning the cooler red colors which is really pretty and the thyrsiflora's have finally started to throw up the blooms spikes. I took a few pictures today. I will post more pictures when the blooms open up.

Pair of Monarchs

There was a pair of Monarchs yesterday that were hanging around the nursery all day yesterday. I tried to get photos of the two of them together but they were not posing at the same time. I got about 60 shots of them individually though that were good I thought. They were all over the Butterfly Weed / Milk Weed. They would go over to the Lavender for a second or the Salvia but obviously were having a better time with the Butterfly Weed. I took some pics and selected my three favorites to post. I am going out today to take pictures of the plants- everything is in full color with the cooler weather- It is absolutely beautiful out there. I love this time of year. We had a guy come in today asking about the Little Ollies- said he could see the shimmering silver from across the street. They look stunning. Hope you enjoyed the photos!!!
