Once a science teacher, always a science teacher … sometime last summer, I picked up an overgrown pot of succulent ‘Jelly Beans’ (Sedum rubrotinctum) at an estate sale for a dollar (I know! I just love estate sales!). Anyhow, when I got home, I divided the plant into two pots and proceeded to place one in the backyard – where it gets filtered morning light, and the other in the front courtyard – where it gets full blazing sunlight all afternoon. Can you guess which is which?
Now that the blue agapanthus in the front courtyard have finished blooming, our resident hummingbirds are all over the red bottle brush flowers and pink Arbutus ‘Marina’ blossoms in the backyard. Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of red or pink flowers, but I gladly grow them for the hummers. I love those little birds.
Have a wonderful weekend!
