I heart succulents


When I first started living on my own, I was plantless…that was also a very dark period of my life.  But then a friend gave me a baby spider plant and I was hooked.  I started collecting plants and cuttings and soon my apartment looked like a jungle…well maybe more like a science lab because I had dozens of little water-filled glass jars with various cuttings rooting in them displayed on shelves.  It felt good to have living things in my life.

I still have a lot of plants now but lately I have a renewed interest in succulents.  I like their sculptural quality and you just can’t help but want to pinch those little fat leaves.  I’m trying hard not to go hog wild and buy more succulents but I may cave soon.  They’re just so irresistible.

    Careful about those succulents. About 40 years ago my wife planted a packet of mixed cactus seeds. We now have two greenhouses overfilled with succulents and have even made a retirement business out of it. So…take care!
