A new life...
Hello again! I don't know why I am so much intrigued by blogging, but I don't want to give up reading (OR SHARING) them...so...ever onward...my new name is A Succulent Life, which is to include all areas of my life and thoughts...not just plants necessarily. Dictionary.com defines it as:
1. full of juice; juicy.
2. rich in desirable qualities.
3. affording mental nourishment.
4. (of a plant) having fleshy and juicy tissues.
5. a succulent plant, as a sedum or cactus.
My little teacup has served as home for now 3 seperate plantings...today I redistributed what was in there, and put in 3 little babies, who are saying "I wonder what we will be when we grow up"???
I also recieved some cuttings and a few rooted peices of this variegated pothos (Epipremnum aureum 'Marble Queen')...they are common household plants, but I have never seen one with this coloration before...mostly a near white, with speckling of green...very pretty!!! I believe this plant in all of it's varieties could become an obsession of mine! I have a solid green one outside on my porch right now...it needs friends...or should I say "cousins"!
I plan to take individual photos of my plants and post them, and I have a few things happening suddenly, in the succulent tires ...like a blooming aloe, that you must see....probably tomorrow morning!
