A few more photos…

I am getting confused with names of succulents. They are either Sedeverias, Sedums, Graptoverias, Aloes, Crassulas, Kalanchoes, Aeoniums  or some other “similar” sounding names…

Whatever they are called, I love them. Here are a few more from the balcony.

This photo prompted me to write the opening paragraph. I love this baby… but I cannot tell you the name unless I hunt for its tag…

Senecio © Evelyn Howard 2011

Sometimes I come across Blue Chalk Stick as the name of this lovely plant. I think it’s easier to remember than Senecio…

  Kalanchoe © Evelyn Howard 2011

Kalanchoe… I think this specie is easier to recognised by the shape of its leaves.

Echeveria and Sedum © Evelyn Howard 2011

Echeveria and sedum… someone asked if this blue grey bloom was a ghost plant in an earlier post.  That would be an easier name to remember…

Sedum © Evelyn Howard 2011

Sedum (probably)… wearing my Learner Gardener’s hat, this plant should not be classified as a succulent. Unlike the others, it loves water, so it messes up my watering routine. 

Visit Teri’s Painted Daisies on Monday for Cactus Monday links.


are less confusing, I think...

There truth is I’ve given up on vegetables. They also mess up my watering routine and I don’t cook enough… These are my last few photos.

Have you seen a lonelier chilli?

Vietnamese mint © Evelyn Howard 2011

Vietnamese mint makes me feel good as a gardener, like I’ve done something right. It just grows and grows and keep growing….

Oregano © Evelyn Howard 2011

Oregano is also a happy plant on my balcony.

Rosemary © Evelyn Howard 2011

I love the smell of Rosemary. I cannot help but touch it.

Happy Gardening!

I’ll be taking a break for a little while. Please visit my other blog, as I will still be Enjoying the Good Life.

Hi Evelyn! For not remembering the names, you did a very good job of it! The Blue Chalksticks is a Senecio...right on, it's one of my favorites too. Happy early Cactus Monday since I'm still on Sunday!

You sound like me, I can never remember the names either except for the few cacti that I see everywhere.

I have never seen your blue chalksticks, how very interesting!

I was admiring your artwork on the sidebar, love them.

Wonderful shots of your succulents. They are looking awesome. I get confused also. I think your unknown is a type of Pachyveria or Pachyphytum. And your oregano looks so healthy. I always have trouble with herbs.
