    What spring beauties you have. I love the variegation on your aloe. Do you know which one that is?

      @Douglas Hunt Sorry, it was a gift and I don't know. If I can find it, I'll let you know. The name I found was... Aloe Variegata.

    Your plum tree may not be giving you fruit, but look at the pleasure it's flowers give you in the spring

      @Libby Yuewhoo You are so right! I was about to cut it down because it wasn't even blooming much and what blooms there were are too early for the bees (I think). Apparently, it enjoyed the repeated freezing this winter, cause it is definitely putting on a show right now :)
