Garden of Delights

Garden of Delights

I have nothing to say today.  My brain is all Christmas-ed out and I am incapable of speech much of the time, let alone actually writing coherently.  So here are some pretty photos of plants.  My succulents (every time I say “my succulents” it sounds like some sort of rude euphemism) are doing very well at the moment, if I do say so myself.  Well, to be honest, they are always doing well – that’s why I have them.  The death rate with succulents, even for a brown thumb like me, is relatively low and they never cease to amaze and delight me with their ever-changing colour and pretty blossoms (which always seems to spring out of nowhere and are just suddenly THERE).

I love the little “babies” that grow from the tiniest dropped leaf.  I can’t throw any part of them away – it makes me feel terrible.  So I have succulents propagating all over the place.  They make me happy.  In the absence of any pets (sigh…sad face), a few cheerful plants around the place gives me something to care for (badly) and talk to (crazily).  Plus it makes me look like I know what I am doing, in terms of gardening, when generally I am a forgetting-to-water things kind of girl.

Hope you are having a bright and happy day 🙂
