February GBBD 2017

Happy February GBBD 2017!  I say it all the time but where does the time go?
Aloe marlothii
The weather here has been just plain crazy.  Hot, cold, freezing, meeting all kinds of records for coldest then hottest days of the year on record- just typical Texas weather.... 
The Aloe marlothii is blooming which to me is always a magnificent bloom spike. 
Echeveria
 The echeveria are enjoying the cooler temperatures and showing off all their colors.
Agave Blue Glow
 The Agave 'Blue Glow' is using the sunshine to show off it's beautiful edges.
   The succulents have been blooming away which is always fun to watch.

Vivero Growers Nursery
  Things are blooming which is nice cause it gives the bees and butterflies things to visit.

  1. You have such a variety of blooms for February and I especially like your captures of the Aloe marlothii bloom spike and Echeveria. We just got over a significant snow here and it has been a very unpredictable winter with lows in the 20's to highs in the 50's. There are some subtle signs of spring!

    1. Thanks! I took that with my phone. I was taking a quick picture to show a friend what it looked like and then really ended up liking the photo. Love accidental shots.

  8. Lots of pretty things! I often think that the term global warming doesn't quite describe what we're really facing. The weather seems to fluctuate wildly and isn't just warmer.
