TIME FOR A CHANGE

It wasn't just the threat of a freeze tonight which had me removing the succulent Huernia schnederiana from the front gate. I've known for a while that the plant needed a severe hair cut.


I didn't have to do much cutting though because as I transported it to its winter haven lots of branches broke off. They have now been potted up.


But the real reason was Christmas decorating. I cut some branches from the holly, added some raffia and a bow to make a simple arrangement. Now we are all set to welcome guests. I just hope the mockingbird doesn't pinch the berries.

  1. Your arrangement looks lovely. I've covered my pass along from you of the Hs hoping that will suffice. It was just starting to take off.
