Dead Plants and Rotting Meat

I have a couple of pots on my lanai that I put bedding plants in – that is, plants with pretty flowers that are covered with blooms for a while, then get tired. When they tire out, I replace them.

My newest acquisition was some dahlias. I was excited, because I haven’t tried them here yet.

I think I will call this a failure. They have all suddenly died.

In other news, my starfish flower is blooming. It’s a succulent that has giant blooms that smell and look like rotting meat, because its pollinators are flies… and ants, apparently. The flower was covered with them.

    I’m sorry about your dahlias. Maybe your terrifying Little Shop of Horrors plant frightened them so much they just gave up the ghost. 😉
