So after the "great freeze" earlier this year, we lost several plants...or so we thought!
This was the wonderful Aloe Vera we had (my fault entirely, I forgot to put it inside before we left before the freeze). I saw a bit of green but wasn't sure.
So we just left it to sit...
This past weekend I cleaned it up, pulled out the red and found GREEN! So we have aloe growing once again. Hopefully it will fill up over the next few months. This is about the size we originally started with when 2nd Family gave us some.
These are some hanging baskets, ferns and underneath all that, a hanging planter with some Texas lantana. The ferns were definitely DOA, and so was all the lantana...or was it?
There was still one piece alive and actually blooming now! So I carefully dug it out, and put it in the ground in the flowerbed. YAY!
And lastly, here were the avocado trees. Dead and even the trunk and branches were dead and snapped when you broke them. I put them at the end of the porch and left them. Occasionally I watered them, "just in case" but only when I remembered.
I was about ready to toss them when...
They erupted in leaves and are growing! I'm not sure if they will become trees again because they are sprouting up from all around the dead center "trunk", but hey, we'll take "avocado bushes" if we can get them. As long as they someday produce avocados, we'd be more than happy, bushes or trees!
NATURE FINDS A WAY!
