A Potted Garden

In southern California succulents can be found adding a bit of texture to practically any garden. They are a perfect plant needing little water (have you seen a lake near you lately?), and not only are they tough to kill but if my momma Aloe Vera is anything close to typical they reproduce like weeds AND it makes a great source for soothing sunburns because there ain't nothin' like the real thing. Hence my obsession.

Thrift stores are filled with great pots for planting fun little succulent gardens. Naturally during the most recent thrifting adventure everything had potential to house succulents, from ceramic to copper plated and aluminum pots I found a flurry of them. And have momma Aloe and momma momma to thank for the plethora of plants available for all my gardens!

And what a great gift.
