I needed to get out of the house and stretch my eyes…you know what that means right? I end up at Cistus Nursery. Of course it was a weekday, a COLD weekday. Who would visit a destination nursery on a 35 degree afternoon? Me.
Ok there was one other group there, I got the feeling one of them had brought the other two who were visiting from out of town.
It was nice to wander and have the place to myself.
As you can see they’re all buttoned up for the season.
Things stowed away, and a heater at the ready.
Unfortunately I'm not the only one with spots on my Agaves...misery loves company right?
Opuntia left outside, proving they are tough characters.
This one, Opuntia basilaris 'Sara's Compact' came home with me, how could it not! Look at those brown/orange polka dots, plus it's hardy to zone 5.
If their Echium collection survives the rest of the winter (and odds are looking good) I can't wait to see the blooms next year!
