Today I attended the annual Parkdale Horticultural Society Plant Sale. There seemed to be less selection this year. I bought less plants then last year but still managed to break the bank.
A few weeks ago I went for a “desperate to escape the misery of winter” excursion to the Allan Gardens Greenhouse here in Toronto.

The thick trunk seen in front [right] is a GIANT pachypodium. They actually cut the spines down — probably to prevent impaling and other potential disasters (those spines are dangerous).
