House update…

Our house…It’s been more than 2 years now. That went by quick! A lot of progress has been made towards our front yard, well especially since Chris and I at one point bought a new plant every week for a few months. The front yard is quickly filling up with our plant babies. It’s so gratifying to watch! We’re also starting to propagate our plants to make MORE plants.. what?!?!! Plants are so cool.


That dr. suess looking tree (Euphorbia lambii) only had 1 of those leafy heads when we bought it, now it has 5 big ones and there’s a couple baby ones! So cool! It’s going to have a killer silhouette once it’s bigger.

These aeoniums are the toughest little plants! These ones were all tiny and shriveled up when we got them from a friend… now look at them!


this lavender grew 10 times it’s size since we planted it. this was one of the first plants we planted!

Yes, you grow bougainvillea! The photo below is the boug when we first planted it you can’t really tell in the photo, but it was tiny… now it’s nicely trailing up the house! I love it!



I can’t wait until this wall is fully covered by this plant (amazon sunset, parrot’s beak) it has really pretty orange flowers that hummingbirds love.


This guy is still a baby… a scary spiky baby. But isn’t he so cool!? I love the grey. Do a google search for pachypodium geayi and you’ll see what he’ll grow up to be… do it!


This is Chris’ dragon tree. We can’t wait ’till this guy gets bigger, it seems like it’s taking forever but the growth is there, we’ve noticed a few more leaves and that the trunk has gotten a little thicker.


Those were a few of our other plants… and there are more of them, so MUCH more… Sometimes we like to go outside and just look at them all. Are you as crazy as we are about plants?
