Happiness as Anarchy #79: Succulents

Succulents are so interesting, attractive and tough. I don’t know what any of the ones in my garden are called, mainly because I have picked them up in my travels. A stalk from a roadside here, a bit from someone’s garden there, one from the green waste pile at the tip. You just snap a piece off and stick it in the ground when you get home, et voilà, it grows. They all have such wonderful structure and colour. I particularly like the red stripe on the edge of the leaves of this one. I envisage the grass in my garden being slowly taken over by randomly acquired succulents.


Here’s an article with planting suggestions and names of succulents from Planted Well:
