As evidenced two posts ago, I have moved. The house was sold, the garden dismantled, plants given away, but a small collection of plants has traveled with me to my latest abode, a rental we’ll live in for a few months while our new little house gets a remodel. A lot of my plants didn’t fare well because I withheld water to keep them light for the move, but it was also a hot week during our move so there was a lot of stress to me and the plants! We’re all recovering and pots will thrive again, but in the meantime I had a little surprise when I looked out the kitchen window. Two of my stapelias have bloomed – a big one and a tiny one. Stapelia – simple pleasures…..
The flowers on this big guy are salad plate size. Two blooms at the same time!
Here’s a shot for comparison. Always stunning!
