More hummers today

Same bird above and below, just a different angle of reflected sunlight changing the color of the gorget.

Time to repot?

This cutting takes the prize for best grower, look at those branches coming out of a 4" pot~!
Hard to believe this plant didn't get knocked off in the storms, which would have broken the branches to bits I'm sure. I had a couple others that unfortunately met that fate. :(
So I decided to get my few different starts into one hanging basket. This is "Blacklight". No buds so far but maybe next year!....

Gearing up for spring!

I'm going to do some repotting and fertilizing today....scale is rearing its ugly head in a few pots so I'll be watering with systemic insecticide.
But before I get busy with that I thought I'd share a couple of pictures from the ESA meeting....the lone bloom, an Ackermanii hybrid and some dragonfruit that was brought in for the snack table.
Also, here's a picture of a couple of cuttings that I got started by putting them in water, we'll see how those do this year.
