What a stunning plant !
I love the blue-grey colour and what a great colour contrast with the Bouganvillea.

Thanks! : > )

Yes, it rained yesterday after I got home...and today it's still showery and cold too...which is a little unusual for this time of year.

I guess your plants enjoyed the showers...?

Terratoonie:

Almost all the plants are enjoying all the rain and showers. The only plants which don't like the rain are my succulents and Plumeria trees.
