More succulent tire photos

Here are a few more images of my nighttime photo snapping of the succulent tires! (It was all done the same night...I don't have some strange fetish for picture taking in the dark...) You can see how overgrown the crassula mucosa (Watch Chain) is in the one pic! It is in the 4th pic down on the upper right hand side of pic...the long skinny green stuff....there is actually a lot more of it in there than you can see. I think I will split it up between the tires that need some filling in. It does well in full sun. That is a problem with the tires...a lot of succulents really don't do as well in full sun, I have found that out the hard way...(not like cactus). Whatever hasn't made it out there, gets moved into the succulent hospital in the screenroom. I am happy to say that mostly everything has survived that has gone into the hospital. YEAH! When I can, I will show you some of the survivors! That reminds me...I still haven't watered in there for about 7 weeks now...good grief...why are they all still alive and thriving? Maybe I should be watering way less!!! Sounds good to me!




And a couple of Crepe Myrtle trees (one pink, one lavender) found at Target, that I am waiting to plant, when I can decide where I want them! This is not an easy decision...but I think they will definately be able to be seen out a window, for sure!

Well, your nocturnal photographic ventures have produced some stunning results. Somehow all the attention goes to the plant in a night time photograph with a flash on, as everything else is enveloped in darkness.
The Crepe Myrtles are cute.

Your succulents do look magical at night. I think they resemble underwater seascapes. I have a couple of Crepe Myrtles same colors as yours.

The tires are really fabulous. And great pics... I wish my night-time flash worked as well.

Great night photos Julie. I so agree with you about the sunlight and watering. I burned a lot of succulents in my early days. It's a common mistake I think.

Cool beans!

Wish I lived in an area where I could place succulents like this outside year round.
