In a month I will have to begin to bring my plants inside for the winter. I start putting them in decorative pots so they compliment the interior and separate the overgrown that I will keep the larger piece in the Laundry room.

I have named my Laundry room my Tacky Tikki Room. I move all my tropicals down there and keep them just above not dying until I can put them outside for the summer. Also add many succulents and cactus that do not need water or extreme care.

This is the start of using succulents that will winter in the Sunroom this winter. They are my cute Lady head pots. Thank you Bev. Hilarious!

Cinta, did you have to mention winter. I just don't know what I am going to do. I am a slave to my plants and have no time or effort to do so. I hate this climate. I got more plants than I can put away this winter.

That is a nice selection but I fear many will quickly outgrow that 12" planter.
Be VERY careful with the sap from the Firesticks. It can be extremely irritating when you get it in your eyes, I know several people who made a trip to the ER when they got this in their eyes!

It would seem some Euphorbia's are more toxic than others. They all have that white sap. I have heard horror stories about firesticks. I also got some sap into my eyes. Holy carp on a stick. Did that hurt. I flushed my eyes out for hours before it stopped burning. Next day, I was ok. I slept with a cold compress on my eyes.

I love the pot head ladies! They remind me of the old Chiquita banana commercial with the dancing lady in the fruit hat.

Thanks Hetty.I was reading about Firestick,in the Euphorbia family ,all those can cause skin reactions.
I am still waiting for Youngs order to finish the Blue sculpture container.
Meanwhile I found a few odds and ends and planted some semp shoots.
This is close to out of control
