Cleaning up for Halloween
The flagstone walkway to the front door has been getting narrower and narrower these past few years as I’ve been adding pot after pot of succulents. With Halloween upon us, my wife suggested I clear the walkway, not only to avoid damage to my plants but also to prevent bodily harm to the trick-or-treaters.
These well-armed succulents could definitely cause a boo-boo or two
While cleaning up is not my favorite chore, I had to agree with my wife so I did a blitz shuffle this morning.
OK, these empty pots really don’t have to be there
This is beginning to look messy
Sometimes I think I have too many plants…
This small rack is right next to the front door. Please are always tempted to touch these aeoniums.

Time to pressure-wash the flagstone to get rid of the water stains
I even removed a few culms from the Alphonse Karr bamboo
so people don’t have to duck to get to the front door
Where did all the plants go, you might wonder. Well, I tucked them away here and there.
This will also protect them from the next rain storm predicted for late today and tomorrow.
Happy Halloween, everybody!
