The Roses Begin, The Aloes Wind Down

Still plenty to do before summer's heat arrives.  A big clump of Echeveria 'Imbricata' needed to be revitalized.  I cut all the rosettes for re-rooting:

Agave 'Blue Glow' continues skyward:

Soon most of the Aloes will finish blooming and plants will start to look stressed from the dry heat of summer.  For now, my mostly one-of-everything front slope looks good.  Agave marmorata:

Aloe, species forgotton:

Unlike the Agaves and Aloes, the roses get water all summer.  'Golden Buddha':

'Just Joey' looks good:

'Charles Rennie Mackintosh' wakes up:

Perhaps because of the cold and hot spells, 'Pink Gruss an Aachen' is slightly asymmetrical, but the color is rich:

I hope you are having a beautiful day.

  1. Beautiful roses, agaves and aloes, your garden looks wonderful and filled with colour.
    xoxoxo ♡

  2. You've inspired me to "revitalize" my Echeverias too! Love your posts! Thank you!

    1. Great! Now is a good time, they should root quickly.

  3. YOU are certainly having a beautiful day, if your garden's any indication. That wonderful shot of your tapestry of yuccas, succulents and aloes knocked my socks off!

    1. Yes, I did! :) Thank you, glad you liked the photo.

    2. Agreed! I'm so envious of that gorgeous hillside.

    3. I never dreamed it would look that good. I certainly didn't plan it.
