Echeveria1

I see we’re growing some very colorful Echeveria Hybrids this time of year.

Echeveria2

While it’s true they are very colorful, they’re not really this colorful. There may have been some filtering going on with these photos too.

Echeveria3

But so nice…

I say, how about a terrarium? And a caveman or monkey man from the Ascent of Man series would be a fantastic, and ironic, finishing touch.

Cotyledon orbiculata in full bloom. Now that’s a nicely shaped shrubby and chalky succulent, just like your mother used to make.

And in case you don’t also follow me on instagram, here’s the instagrammed and filtered version that appeared there.

Here is our proposal for succulent baskets. Who is the proposal for? It’s a secret. But still, don’t you think we should get it? Of course you do. And we thank you for your support.

In this clever photo I chose to hide the Agave behind a fence. I could have walked a few feet and taken the picture without the fence in the way, but then you wouldn’t have seen the scaffolding. So those were the choices and this is the result.
