Planting Succulents

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.   Today we are going to leave my garden and go to beautiful Roger's Gardens in Newport Beach, CA to look for Succulents to plant.  I am gradually integrating them into our garden with other water-wise plants since we are experiencing drought conditions in Southern California.  Roger's Gardens is located on 5 acres and is a fabulous home and garden store with magnificent gardens, floral shop, art gallery, home decor shop, books and gifts


                                 The garden has Succulents planted in charming containers.

                                                            Drift wood planters.






                                              The rusty metal containers are my favorites.




I have enclosed a photo of the paintings I shared with you last week that are now hanging in the Showcase Gallery.







I am looking forward to planting the Succulents I purchased in interesting and colorful ways using some of my rusty vintage containers and will share with you as soon as they are planted.

Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate you visits, e-mails, comments and those following my blog.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin

The succulents look so good. I am afraid that is the way I will be going. MY roses are terrible looking. Very small roses, they almost look like miniature roses.
Hopefully we will have a lot of rain this winter and our flowers will grow. I have been cutting back my roses so hopefully they will survive.
Your paintings look so good hanging at the Art Show. I hope that it is a great success.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I love succulents, I've also been planting them in my garden, so our climate in Perth is also very hot and dry. Good luck with your art show, the pictures looks fabulous!

They really are so beautiful planted in such special ways such as the tree trunks and, like you, I'm thinking it might even be the way to fight the heat/drought conditions here - which seem to get worse each Summer! Today is the first in many, many weeks where it's actually below 90F - feels fabulous!

I hope to see beautiful paintings showing your succulents some day dear Erin - I know they will be exquisite.
Keep sweet Bentley away from the prickly ones though, those can really hurt! I accidentally hit my hand on one outside a Mexican restaurant some time back, the pain was awful and I noticed not long after that they removed them, so perhaps others, even children, had been hurt too!

Your colorful art displayed at the show is lovely -
Hugs - Mary

I have never been much for succulents, but this drought is introducing me to so many gorgeous plants.

I love the lavender shade in your photos today.

Ah, sometimes I think I'd like to live at Rogers if only for a day or two.

Wow, what amazing things you do with your succulents! I've had a passion for them since I was a child. I still have the direct descendant growing from a succulent I was given as a 10 year old.
As it happens I recently posted a picture of a pretty yellow succulent you may like to see.
The drought you are having over there in California sounds terrible - I hope you get some rain soon.
So lovely to discover your blog - I've be back again to explore it further!
