Saw a potential bloom slowly forming in one of my sedum morganianum plants ...woohoo Hurray!
Hopefully it proceeds without a hitch! I wonder if a sudden cool down aborts it..we are expecting a sudden cool down tomorrow Rolling my eyes.

Here's how it looks like right now..as always, only in one strand...but one is better than none!

Wow, really nice. I used to have a large one of those in Calif. If I even moved the air around it, it lost it's seeds. When we left, I sold it at a garage sale and I think half of it stayed on the floor of the garage. That delicate nature is what keeps me from getting another one, that and the resemblance they have to a cat toy Whistling

Oh we have that cat toy thing going on here too. Now the 'comfy' planter that was underneath it has been replaced with a very spiky Agave and they don't get near the Sedum anymore! Big Grin
