Mother in Law's Tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata), various succulents, California Bush Sunflower (Encelia californica) on the bench far right.

After some much needed rain, the sun was out. I took the opportunity to tend to some plants begging for attention. The Mother in Law's Tongue on the left is over 20 years old. I admire the tenacity of this plant. Originally, it belonged to my sister who gifted it to me after moving out of state many years ago. At times the plant has thrived. Other times, like now, it merely survives.

In honor of it's fortitude, I offer it a new lease on life.

California Bush Sunflower (Encelia californica) volunteers await replanting

I pulled these volunteers from our dry stack walls and planted them in a pot. In the past, I have replanted them directly in the yard. This is the first time I've tried replanting them in a pot. Upon morning inspection, they are halfway slumped over in complaint, but they look like they might come around.
