Chocolate And Barrel Cactus

San Geraldo and I were back Wednesday at Viveros Guzman (the unbelievable garden center in Alhaurín de la Torre, about 30 minutes away). We bought more plants and pots for inside and on the terrace. Some things need to be transplanted, so for now I’ll show you what we brought home. I’ll share photos again once they’re planted and positioned.

(Click the images. You won’t believe how big some things get.)

FICUS MICROCARPA, BONSAI. ALSO KNOWN AS:
CHINESE, MALAYAN, OR TAIWAN BANYAN; INDIAN LAUREL; CURTAIN FIG; OR GAJUMARU.
FOR THE DRACAENA BEHIND IT,
WHICH MAY NEVER MOVE AGAIN!
A QUIRKY CENTERPIECE FOR THE TABLE ON THE TERRACE.
IT ATTACKED SAN GERALDO AT THE GARDEN CENTER.
OF COURSE WE HAD LUNCH AT PAPAS FRITAS Y HUEVOS.
DESSERT WAS NATILLAS DE CHOCOLATE!
NOTICE SAN GERALDO PULLING AWAY
BEFORE I COULD GET THIS OLIVE TREE IN THE CAR?!?
I WANTED IT FOR THE TERRACE [IN MY DREAMS].
