The Succulent 'Garden'

20 comments


This year I have really enjoyed growing succulents. I’ve collected quite a few over the autumn, and they have all grown loads over the time they have been in our spare bedroom.

Here they are in situ….

And here are some close-ups I took to practice with my new camera…

Thanks for looking in on my succulents.

Not much to do right now Paul. However, I do need to winter prune the rest of the apples and cut back the ivy though. Oh, and I've ordered a small tree, so I'll need to cut out another border and plant that and a few other things....and the compost bin needs emptying, the raised planted painting, the Globe Artichokes need moving....and then it will be time to clean the greenhouse and start off the beetroot seeds....lol! Thank goodness for gardening...if it weren't for that I'd have to go out to work! ;) Only kidding...he wouldn't make me!

Ideal time to be practising with your new camera. The close up of the whiskery succulent is great.

Thanks Angela. So far I havent played with it very much. Since Christmas I've made four crocheted cushion covers for my living room and been immersed in Ancestry doing family tree. Then the camera arrived just in time for this freezing weather and I caught a horrible cold which I am just getting over now. I'll get to the camera shortly, but so far you've pretty much seen every photo I've taken! At least I got to the hairdresser today...first cut since June! So I look less like a scary scarecrow now! Oh...and it was still light at 4.30 did you notice today? The worst of the darkness is OVER! Hurray!

Love an indoor garden at this time of year..they are looking very happy Karen, they obviously enjoy the lovely view..sounds like u are raring to go with a list at the ready...I'm the same, its deffinately getting dark a little later. I managed a fab couple of days in the tunnel and yesterday the wind dropped a little and I did a day in the nursery. Nice to get my hands dirty again..

I'm a bit envious Sandra. I did nip in to the greenhouse yesterday. :)

Goodness K, I cannot believe you haven't been to the hairdressers since June, mine would have been down to my knees by then lol!! glad to hear you have recovered from the cold, so many about this year...
