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.
