In the conservatory at Veddw we have a display of succulents, which we love and other people seem to, too. Makes for visitor entertainment when they are sheltering from the pouring rain.
But Charles takes better pictures and likes them flowering.
Some time ago I noticed that occasionally a ‘leaf’, or whatever that bit of a succulent is called, drops off and starts rooting in the gravel all by itself.
And for some reason these look really cute. A sort of horticultural equivalent of kittens.
Though they are quite hard to take pictures of, if you’re me.
They even start flowering.
But of course, or of curse, what happens when I discover this is that I start picking them off and starting them in the gravel myself. And then I get preoccupied with whether they need watering or not. And generally I start fussing. And I’ve got myself an extra job.
Can’t just accept my blessings, can I? Got to meddle….
And please don’t ask what any are called – I do have labels somewhere but……not another job, please…
