I love the range of colours in these plants. We were given an agave plant when we moved into our new home and it grew and grew and grew, until it had taken over a whole corner of the garden. And then suddenly one day, it fell over and that was the end of that. It must have become too heavy to support itself.
I like succulents but they are difficult to grow here unless you have a greenhouse to overwinter them. I have taken mine indoors but they don’t much like central heating 😦
Ooh aren’t they lovely, I’ve never seen the yellow, pink and green one before!
Got some flowering ones yesterday at the Minack Theatre before the storm hit!
I hope to see them soon 🙂 the sea at Sidmouth was horrendous yesterday, just like November.
We were viewing a house not so far from Cape Cornwall – it was a complete deluge! I thought we’d be blown away! Love the new Avatar by the way 🙂
I would love to have these in my back yard. Variety of color, easy to grow and beautiful.
Except they HATE cold weather!
They would love it here for about 6 weeks. 🙂
And then into a warm greenhouse 😉
I love succulents Jude and I am lucky they are so easy to grow over here…
Ah, your garden is a treasure PP.
Did you have time for a quick stroll around my place Jude? https://pommepal.wordpress.com/2015/06/01/my-queensland-garden-on-the-first-day-of-winter/
I did, which is what prompted my comment. You have a lovely garden, not sure I could leave it as often as you do 🙂
Ah well I guess the time will come when I can’t travel so much. … 😦
I’m sure that won’t be for a long time!
Aren’t they wonderful subjects for portraiture? I can understand why people become succulent tragics – sharp shape and clear colour. That first one against the steep hillside is my favourite.
I like the big ones too, they remind me of Cape Town. I also love Lithops – the ones that look like stones! But I haven’t spotted any so far.
I’ve never been a big fan of succulents but your photos make them look so pretty!
Awesome. Finally I know what they are. Your shots are lovely. I actually have a green one on my terrace already I just realised seeing your photos. Thanks so much Jude.
