|The Gravel After Drying Out|
Last year, I took photos of the front garden, every month, on or around the 20th of the month and it was quite interesting to see the changes from month to month. I've decided to do that again, this year, too, and maybe compare the photos.
|Front Garden. January 2023|
Here's how the garden looked in January, last year:

Taken from slightly different angles, but, the lantana plants are flowering earlier, this year, with all the recent rains we've had.
|Aloe Flower Stalks|
The aloe flower stalks are still in bud, this year (last year, they were already in bloom).
The yucca plants are growing well, with several plantlets growing from the main stems.
This is how they looked in July 2021, several months after the cuttings (taken from a plant in the back yard) were planted, with the new plantlets forming:

Then, some time in November 2021, someone cut off and apparently helped themselves to several of the new plantlets and I was not very happy about it:
But, the plant seems to have recovered and is doing well, now.
The succulents bed along the side wall - not good photos as I was photographing against the sun (I know that the photographers among you are probably wincing!):
|Probably a good illustration for "how NOT to photograph"!|
More succulents from the cuttings my former supervisor gave me from her garden:
The asparagus ferns in the planting bed along the walkway to the front door:
