Summer Succulents!

I am playing it a different a tad with some of my plants around my pool.

One reason…this year when spring hit, I was going through all of my pots that had been around my pool to get them ready for new flowers.

I was shocked to see that many of my succulents had made it through winter, with no care on my part.


Stick with Succulents!

They survive on just a little water.

They are colorful.

They thicken and multiply.

They come back year after year.

These pics were taken not long after I transplanted the ones that survived the winter with a few new varieties.

You should see them now!

I will still have some of my pretty flowers.

But I will place my flowers where I know they can get watered…by rain… case I forget.

But my succulents can be placed pretty much anywhere and are here to stay!

What about you?

Do you have a favorite “Low or NO maintenance” summer flower or plant?

Have you tried succulents?

I would love to know!

    I have one that blooms tiny yellow flowers. Low maintenance is the best. 🙂
