Crazy About Succulents

Well, I have a new favorite plant this year. Suddenly I have gone succulent crazy! Before this spring I don't think I have ever planted or owned a succulent. Now I have a couple pots outside and a cute little plant by the kitchen sink. Mixing and matching succulents is a lot fun since there are so many variations of the plant.
  
Here's my first succulent garden I planted a several weeks ago:



Yesterday I was running errands and noticed the local nursery had all plants half price. I had to use some major self control to keep from buying one of everything! They had beautiful succulents that were quite large for only $2. What a deal! Later in the day I went to Target and discovered several pots on clearance. So I got the plants and the pot for half price!



And here's my cute little plant that sits by the kitchen window.

Oh I love them! I am obsessed with succulents and those little terrariums! I guess I need to make a few myself, yours are beautiful! :)

Beautiful pots Emily! Martha turned me on to succulents a long time ago - I love them! So pretty and extra easy to grow.

Your succulent garden looks really good. I love your combination of shapes...spikey, rosette and the little chartreusey one. I have several, but yours look so great, I'm wanting to go to the garden center for more. :)
Happy Sunday,
