I discovered the other day that we have photos that were missed what with Christmas and all. This post will be part one of catching up on our 2021 photos.
This is a desert rose, I have had it since it was only a foot high. All the flowers and leaves were destroyed by the hurricane. But it is coming back. It can grow up to nine feet high.
Click here to read about it and see more photos. I just now learned that it is a poisonous plant. Good thing I looked this up for this post. The girls will be kept well away from my two plants.
Adenium obesum produces a sap in its roots and stems that contains cardiac glycosides. This sap is used as arrow poison for hunting large game throughout much of Africa and as a fish toxin.
A new plant I purchased three weeks ago. I used to have one but it was in a small pot and eventually died. I do not yet know its name but I saw it just the other day as a full grown beautiful tree. Thankfully I planted this one in a large pot.
It has this tiny yellow star like bud/stamen? that I have only seen few times. Next thing I know there are more flowers coming.
This is where the girls wait for us if either one of us leaves the yard for something. Even if I am here and Colin leaves for 5 – 10 minutes they will sit and wait. I hope that this is good training for them being left alone. To the right is my second small desert rose. The branch would have to be broken open for the poison to some out.
More beach training.
Usually we eat dinner and watch an hour or two of taped TV. This is Carlie who was under the blanket and then did a full stretch on her back. For the last three nights she has left the living room area and headed to her crate to rest. Ciela stays with us.
I guess that as we have the wine and are not going out because of the frightful virus that we might as well let the wine flow.
