If you don't know me, this summarizes it all.
Succulents, densely planted in a classic wooden frame. I love it. I think this picture is originally from BHG, but it came down a long line of Pinterest pinners. I love, love, love it. I won't have, have, have it, though. It's cost prohibitive. But I'm thinking of starting something similar with hen & chicks this summer. I have about, uh, seven million in the yard. I just need a good location.
I've always had a succulent obsession. I have several, for the record. They're just little darling things that I like. I like them all. Not to be confused with cacti, which I don't love.
Please enjoy a visual tour of some of my favorites:
|Your basic hen & chick. Sempervivium Tectorum. Yes, I like the scientific names for things.|
|Emporer Sedum in full bloom. Bee magnet, but worth it. And predictable. I love it. I also love this in the purple variety.|
|This is super popular . . your basic all green stone crop, Johnny Creech. |
I also love the red variety of this and the tri-color.
|Angelicum. I love it. It's soft.|
|Hispanicum. I love it.|
