This last weekend I had a chance to visit one of my sisters. My husband and I had tickets to a play in the City, and we spent the night at my sister's place on Saturday night. Sunday morning my sister and her husband took me to a local garden nursery that was simply amazing. If I lived near it, I swear I would be visiting it at least twice a week. I'd need a truck, and a gardener to plant all the stuff I bought.
Since money and space in the car were both tight, I had to content myself with the purchase of the makings of the little succulent garden you see pictured above. I had such fun choosing the plants and the ceramic dish I planted them in. It was hardly a bargain, but I know I will enjoy it all summer long and hopefully for seasons to come.
The little succulents that look like rosettes are called Hens and Chicks. The lighter green and pinkish plant on the right is a Donkey's Tail Sedum. I don't know what the shaggy looking specimin on the left is, but I think it will spill over the sides of the dish eventually. I can't wait to see how this fills in!
