Not enough sun???

I have some of these, used to have quite a lot, all taken off the original i bought on the Scilly Islands. Unfortunately we had a freakish cold winter with snow and of course it sadly killed them all. Have replaced and now shelter them in case we ever have same again. Imagine they thrive where you are..lucky plants and you!

Maezymare, they grow really well where I live. I have them planted in the garden. I'm so glad we don't have freakish clod winters here!!! Good job you have them in a sheltered area...you can enjoy them come summer.

Alexandramou:

The inside of the plant is turning green now and the outside is purple.....looks really nice.
It's happened to me many times.....you think to yourself.....how did I miss this picture???

You won't believe the weather this morning......rain, crazy crazy winds....knocking everything down!!! I woke up to a house full of smoke....the wind was pushing the smoke from my wood burner back in!!! It's going to be one of those day. Temperatures are suppose to drop to minus!!!

I've seen that happen to Aeonium before.

I guess there's a lot of photos I have to catch up on seeing. :>)

That sounds very wild! Hope your temps don't go down so low! Stay warm, if they do.

I hope they don't go down too low either.....nothing better mess around with my plants!!!

Did it get any colder?

8 Jan, 2012

 

Not really....normal cold so far....but the wind was incredible! I need to go check on the garden today.

That's good, it's not too cold! Winds can cause a lot of damage, though.

The Santa Winds are the big problem here during winter, sometimes.
On Dec. 1, 2011...a HUGE Santa Ana Wind storm hit many areas of Los Angeles causing severe damage to the Los Angeles Arboretum and Huntington Library and Gardens...some of the gusts were estimated up to 140mp/h (225kp/h). Thousands of mature tree were heavily damaged and hundreds of trees blew over. :>(

It caused a lot of structural damage and many telephone poles were snapped like toothpicks. It was literally the highest Santa Winds ever recorded in the state.

Here's a pretty impressive video:

WOW, that is damage!
The country music made me laugh. ;o)

Well, it's been cold yesterday and today....hold on, let me put the thermometer outside....Never trust the weather people.

11 Jan, 2012

 

Woa....9C at 9:00 in the morning.....that is brrr cold. No wonder I wore my gloves to take little guy to school. The steering wheel of the care was coooold.
Roll on summer time....;o)))))

11 Jan, 2012

 

I laughed at the country music, too. :>)

That's not too cold...as long as it warms up later in the day. :>)

The very dry, nice warm weather continues here in San Diego. We so desperately need rain, though.
