Anyway, with great weather upon us I'm in the mood for some serious gardening, but in 15 minute bursts because I'm sweating my butt off! Geez!
I'm talking about succulents a.k.a. "fat plants" because of their water retaining qualities. I have a few very difficult garden beds in my yard.
|See the monster overhang?|
|Hey stop looking at the peeling paint! I haven't gotten there yet!|
I'd be difficult too if I had no access to water! I guess sometimes they get a slanty rain drink. That's why Succulents are a perfect fit for this awkward garden bed. Somehow, even though I don't water them, they survive and add a little green to an otherwise brown garden bed.
When summer is at it's peek these green plants will get a deep pink cluster of flowers, adding even more color to the drab front bed.
The flowers aren't the only burst of color you'll get with succulents. Also beautiful are the lovely shades of green and red the leaves turn in the sun.
Beautiful right? Not only are succulents a great addition to the garden they make beautiful living wreaths.
