Oh no, not me trying to sneak in these two beauties this morning when I suddenly got caught trying to be slick…
My daughter sold me out. She said, β€œMom, I brought in the essentials from your car but what about the other plants?” DH sits up straight, asking β€œWhat other plants?” You guys, I only brought in the one from Austin Succulents yesterday but these two were on my wishlist and I picked them up Thursday while purchasing Blue Flame Agave for my other house. He knew about those but not about the #AgaveVictoriaeReginae #QueenVictoriaAgave that was on my #PlantWishList. He thinks we have a jungle at our house and we do but… but! They’re so pretty!!! Just look at that architecture! My plants are in the garage. I’m uploading them once I finish my coffee but look at the stock images of the mature ones! How does one say β€œNo, I’m good…” to this kind of plant majesty??? Was it worth gettin caught? I think so but what do YOU think? Would you do it just to grow these?

Short answer: you can’t! There’s no saying no, hubby should realize by now. Cracks me up your daughter sold you out!
They’re beauties, enjoy them!
There’s never a β€œno” in the plant world!! Jungle houses are the best!! Hubby will have to adjust or get a bigger house πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
@lemrobs right? Mine just stopped trying! I mean, I told him I was going to cover the house in plants πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

My toddler did the same. I tried to unwrap a plant and place it before hubby saw. He called the the first thing my toddler said was "DADA LOOK AT MAMAS NEW PLANT!" 🀦🏽
Yeah….mine is pretty resigned about the fact that the plants are going to still be coming…space or no space!! So he doesn’t complain. He even went with me to the #NorthTexasGregGang meetup yesterday.
But the thing I loved πŸ’š the most about this post is β€œonce I have my coffee”. Coffee first. Coffee ALWAYS first! β˜•οΈπŸŒ±πŸ˜‚ those Agaves are stunning!!
So see you later for more plants? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ«£
@RJG ayyyeee… my daughter specifically asked if we could go back and I said yes. I may end up leaving with one plant for her but we will be there, rain or shine.
@TJphilobsessed Yass! Coffee first! Always! πŸ˜†
@PlantMompy Those babies tell on us moms so fast… πŸ˜…
@lemrobs I don’t say no to his cars and houses so I get to play with plants. I told him that and he walked away to go admire HIS plants. Go figure! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@rjg speaking of coffee…..have the #gregmugs shipped yet? I think it’s been about 2 months. Just wondering. I want my coffee to taste better in a Gregmug. πŸ˜…β˜•οΈπŸŒ±
@Planthoader oh no, not a bigger house! Please! It’s big enough as it is for me! But I could use a very large greenhouse. No one will ever see me or my pups because we would live in there. That’s a promise! ☺️
@TheGoodWench you know what? That’s what I’m going to tell him from now on. The more he fussed, the more plants I’m bringing! 🀣🀣🀣
@TJphilobsessed I've seen pictures of them being made. Maybe I can get an update ETA next week once everyone is in office
@RJG I’ll see you later. I’ll probably look like Medusa! I’m short on time and I want to get there since my adult child is pressuring me about going and meeting up with plant people. I think she’s hooked!
@FitSedum we did it! I'll be there right at 1!
@RJG I’ll try to remember to come here and let you know I’m there. πŸ˜…
Hahaha! I always leave my plants in the car after going grocery shopping ( then stopping at the nursery by accident πŸ₯Ί) my son takes the groceries out the car then says β€œ you got more plants! You need this inside ?” In front of my husband lol
@FitSedum They look absolutely gorgeous! I believe it was worth going that little hassle πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ€«πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
@TJphilobsessed I was wondering that as well, but I figured they got back from Vacation, and got busy working on the β€œGregMagic” so not much time left for little coffee mugs! They get here in time and they are worth waiting for πŸ€“πŸ˜πŸ€©
@RJG no pressure. I was just wondering. πŸ™‚πŸ˜
@TJphilobsessed you may have to remind me but I have no problem finding out!
@Ms.Persnickety you are SPOT ON!! They ARE worth waiting for. #Gregmugs are magical. They turn coffee into β€˜heavenly coffee’. Or so I hear. πŸ˜‡
Just think of all the fresh air that they give off…and all the bad they take out!
@FitSedum ha! That sounds much better!!!
Those are beautiful. I wouldn’t say no to those. I need like six!!
Coffee before anythingπŸ˜…πŸ€£ @FitSedum @TJphilobsessed
Oops @FitSedum πŸ™ŠπŸ˜¬
How often do I water my new Jasmine plant
Hell Yes!! Beautiful plant’s πŸ’šπŸͺ΄πŸ’šπŸͺ΄πŸ’šπŸͺ΄πŸ₯°
I just keep telling my husband that he’ll have cleaner, fresher Oxygen 😁
OMG Those are amazingly beautiful. YOU HAVE ONE TOO MANY, CAN I HAVE ONE PLEASE!!!’
@YammieOf3 LOL. Sorry, plant fam! I buy in pairs for my porch or my patio. I bought these in Arlington, Tx while visiting Dallas. I wish I could but I only bought the two I needed. 😌
Here they are! I was sidetracked trying to get to the meet up in Austin then driving to Waco today. I just got in and could upload the plant snaps I took before leaving SA.
@Capricornlove πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ They always tell on us!
@Ms.Persnickety I can’t wait to see them grow up! I feel they were worth it right now while still young. πŸ˜„
@froglady3957 I think of it all the time! πŸ˜† DH doesn’t until he’s in a place that has no plants. 🀣🀣🀣
@FitSedum what kinda plant is this
Omg I know your paaaaiiinnn!!! My daughter is a straight snitch girl. Like daaaammmnnn girl I gave you life child, the very LEAST you could do is hear no plants see no plants and speak of no plants I mean damn πŸ€«πŸ™‰πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
@PerkyCaladium welcome to Greg!
@PerkyCaladium your card tells you every four days and that is based on the info you’ve provided the app.
@RJG I want a Greg Mug! How do we get one?
@YammieOf3 it is the Queen Victoria Agave.
@KrunchyWrap 🀣🀣🀣 Right? You know what’s worse? I handed her two pots and said β€œTake these two and leave them on the patio”. Did she do that? No. She took all five out of my car and left them on the patio so now I am being questioned about the three plants that don’t belong to our homestead. πŸ˜… What a set up! 🀣🀣🀣
@FitSedum when you became a top contributor you should have gotten an email asking you to fill out a form w your address so we can send you one.

I assume you never saw that email?
@FitSedum yup πŸ˜‚πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚
@RJG I didn’t. I’ll have to look back and see if I got it. 😬
@Capricornlove we can’t win with these kids! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜­
@RJG I found it. Back in April. πŸ˜… I just filled it out. Thanks!
@FitSedum you're on the list then! Could be a minute. We've had production delays.
@RJG no rush on my end. Thanks.
