…when you can have rosettes! Mangave ‘bloodspot’ rosettes to boot! This was by far one of the best Valentine’s Days to date!
Our date ended with a lot of planty goodness and not a single one is dead…yet. A couple of Flowering Quince ‘Texas Scarlet’–I already have one of these and was led to believe it would only bloom once in early spring, however she bloomed all spring, all summer (even after losing all her leaves and then growing back), all fall and all ?winter? (If that’s what we’re calling it..) so naturally, I needed more.
And of course some cactus, succulents and slag glass (not pictured). The little succulent/cacti pots were only $1 each!! Love me some Living Desert Cactus nursery (where our day began).
And as per usual, no date for this plant nerd would be complete without heading to The Natural Gardener with my honey. Aaaand because the Wildflower Center teamed up with TNG for Member Appreciation month, we got 20% off two of the most expensive plants since both the hubs and I are members!
