GARDEN BLOGGERS BLOOM DAY,AUGUST 2011

Wow! August Bloom Day! The summer is nearly over. Join with our hostess Carol, of Maydreams, and share your bloom day photos.

This is the third bloom day in a row I have missed in my own garden. I will be there for September though. On my way home after a wonderful trip to the NW, including the Garden Bloggers' Fling in Seattle. This where this little succulent came from. A wonderful visit to Dragonfly Farms Nursery, and a special gift which is blooming for me on bloom day. It is a happy camper!!

  3. Gone from home for 3 Bloomdays? That's craziness!

    What a great flower for a portable Bloomday. Was there already a bud when you selected this little succulent or did that come later?

  6. Sue- I hope it will enjoy its new Texas home!
    Bernie- I was really happy to get a succulent as I think I will be growing more of these this next year.
    Danger garden- The flower was just forming buds so I can't claim I have achieved blooming. However, it is still alive and has traveled from se to desert to city to mountain. Seems to like it.
    Greggo- It is rather to heavy, but such a pretty little flower.
    Caroline- It is doing a lot better than some of the other plants I am traveling with!

  8. Isn't he pretty? I thought I photo'd the female but I don't think so now that I have compared the photos. Wonder if it was their nest I saw? No one has ever been back to it- I have left it though in case they are going when I am not around.
    Sound like you are having fun traveling! Neat little succulent you posted.
