Crown of Thorns that Mimi brought back from a cutting years ago has loved the heat and grown so much that I need to cut it back. The last wind storm made a couple of stems fall forward. I think I will try to root the ones I cut and give them away to flower lover. Any suggestions how you would root them? The best method I know of is to put them in water in a glass jar.
The kitty justice is to stay COOL. Another HOT day in TN and you will wear the AIR if you venture outside.

Beautiful plant. Good luck with trying to get them to propagate. I am sure you won't have trouble finding a home for them if you do. ~ jb///

Thanks. Mimi said it takes longer to root than most plants. So at least I have been warned. Peace

Absolutely gorgeous.

I did a bit of catch-up. Love the crepe myrtles. I must try growing some.

Puppy looks so comfortable. What a great day.

I always love to see the photos of your hill. I've missed you while I've been recuperating.

Drop over to the Nook if you have time. I have a new post or two.

Do you mean that Crown of thorns grows outside there? Just a houseplant here and I have not been able to keep one growing for too long. Did you know that this plant is a Euphorbia the very same family as Poinsettia is. Odd huh! MB

Glad to see you back in blogland. Thanks and I will drop by soon. Peace

I move it outside each spring and return it to the house in the fall. Thanks for the info as I did not know anything much about the plant. I have cut off several tops which were beginning to fall over and stuck them in water to hopfully root. Peace
