I'm actually surprised that there weren't any of volunteers from seeds that had to drop behind the fence.
I am, too. However, now that you mention it, I don't get many volunteers either. But my conditions are a bit harsher than yours. If you ever need seeds, let me know.

My garden just had its 1 day of winter so it’s not as impressive as it was, but here’s what I’m most excited about growing right now.

They’re Egyptian walking onions. They’re a perennial onion,when they’re fully grown they will make baby onions on the tips, as those babies get bigger the top of the onion will flop over and plant themselves or…. Walk across the garden ;). At the right time of year they look like interesting oniony flowers.

Echinocactus grusonii — the Golden Barrel Cactus. This has got to be the second most iconic cactus in existence after the legendary Saguaro of the western U.S. Being from the desert of that area I get to see my fair share of cactus growing natively, namely Cholla, Yucca, Agave, Prickly Pear...eh you get the idea, they're everywhere. Of all the cactus around here, though, barrel cactus are just so cool. Some species can grow to be taller than your average basketball player, tell me that isn't a neat plant! Here's one growing in a terracotta pot along with a couple other (not so healthy) cactus and succulents.

My mother gets an amaryllis bulb every Christmas. After it flowers in New Jersey, she sends it down to me in Georgia and I plant it in the garden, as they are hardy in my zone. We just sold our house, so I will need to pick up the tradition once we have our new place.

No, I think it came from Lowes. I can recall repotting it like it was yesterday...I got stabbed so many times despite the gloves.

This Myrmecodia beccarii is the 'grandmother' of numerous antplants I've grown over many years and it's currently producing new seeds. If you zoom in you can see the elongated whitish-translucent fruits nestled in the alveoli (little hollows in the stem).

These weird-looking plants are an uncommon species growing on trees in swampy areas of northern Queensland. They are epiphytes, not parasites so there's no harm to the host tree :)

And they are not carnivores but they have interesting mutualistic relationships with ants and other species.

Beautiful flowers! At the risk of coming across a bit pedantic .... those aren't Amaryllis. They're actually Hippeastrum. (2 related genera with the hippies hailing from South and Central America and Amaryllis being native to Africa..)

I gave up on those long ago. No matter what I tried, could never get them to rebloom in following years.

No problem. They are sold as amaryllis, so that is what I call them. I just stick them in the ground and they come back year after year. I just plant them a little deeper than normal and hit them with the fertilizer that shall not be named.
