A few favourites

The plants have enjoyed summer, and I have enjoyed seeing them grow… It’s autumn now. I went out onto the cold windy balcony this morning to take these photos. Just a few of my favourite pots to share…

On the right is Sedum Gold Mound, another favourite. I notice that it tends to grow too long in winter, but in summer, it’s nicer because it’s compact.

Another Echeveria with Crassula Diane in the same pot, and a Sedum in the terracotta coloured pot.

Hope you are having a nice week.

Your plants are lovely, Evelyn. I'm with Danger Garden and just counting down the days until my succulents can come out of hiding and take back their rightful place on the back porch!
