Mayhem in the Greenhouse

We came home from Tallahassee to find my two biggest pots of Burro Tail Sedum knocked off the highest shelf and little 'beans' all over the floor and everywhere. Hundreds of the little leaves, so easily shed are now swept up and waiting planting.  I will be the Burro Tail Queen if they all root. There are bigger pieces now curing, too.

Here's  how they looked last May. The bigger pot was blooming then, and now as well.

It is probably just as well. Winter in the greenhouse was not kind to those plants. Now all of them can be renovated and new pots started.

We suspect that a squirrel wandered, and Ike the Cat Who Owns the Greenhouse got after him. The squirrel went vertical and pots flew.

Oh, that is too bad! It's hard to get those sedums to look lush like yours. Mine always have too many bare spots. I hope they all root for you.

I bet you will end up with dozens of new plants. Cats alone can do a lot of damage when they take one of those little wild fits that they often do.

I was reading some of the posts from last year and on April 09, 2015 you wrote about planting narcissus seeds. Have you seen any seedlings yet?

Thanks for reminding me! I went out to check on them. They got too dry and there are only 2 survivors. They're tiny like threads but recognizable as daffodils and not grass.
