I recently visited her place to see how her succulent garden was coming along. It looks great already!

Here are some close-ups of her choicest selections:
|Aloe cameronii surrounded by Euphorbia 'Sticks on Fire' and Dyckia|
|Agave parryi, which is producing pups like crazy|

The Abelia x grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope,' which have different watering requirements, will probably be coming out of these beds to make room for more succulents. That means we have more trips to the nursery in store for us, which is great as I also have spaces to fill in my new succulent bed.
I failed to get a shot of Lynda's window boxes but I did get a few photos of the pots she has along the stairway leading up to her front door. They look great too and, as she has LOTS of steps, she's got plenty of room for more pots, which of course will support still more trips to the nursery. (Lynda, if you show this post to Dave, be sure to remind him that none of this shopping is my fault.)
