|The 'Cousin Itt' in the back garden also recovered. The 3 plants here are so robust I've had to cut them back just to keep them from swallowing everything around them.|
|Agave ovatifolia 'Vanzie' was one the plants nearly engulfed by 'Cousin Itt'. I cut her free this week.|
|This is one of 3 Agave americana medio-picta 'Alba' given to me as pups by Hoover Boo of Piece of Eden in 2016. This one is nicely accented by a silvery Maireana sedifolia in the background.|
|In the front garden 2 varieties of Centaurea edge Pennisetum advena 'Rubrum'|
|Along the west-facing front slope, Aeonium arboreum, Agave desmettiana 'Variegata' and various other succulents spill out around another Pennisetum 'Rubrum', framing a peek-a-boo ocean view in the distance|
|In the dry garden on the northeast side of the house, Agave vilmorinana and Agave ovatifolia are still cohabiting peacefully but there may come a time in which they'll be locked in a battle for space|
Tomorrow, December 29th, is my 6-year blogging anniversary. I'm not planning a special post to recognize the occasion but I do want to take the opportunity to thank those of you who read my blog and those who comment, if only periodically. You invited me into a world of garden enthusiasts I hardly knew existed and made me feel a part of it, for which I'm more grateful than I can put into words. Thank you!
