I just started growing succulents this summer. All of the above plants currently grow in my home garden. It's nice to see them all together as a review of summer gardening.

I am in the throes of a significant garden renovation. I'm ripping out perfectly good, handsome and colorful cottage plantings. In the wake of this demolition, the advent of plants pictured here. My objective is to create a more sustainable habitat without sacrificing beauty. Simplicity is my new best friend.
