Nice! The last pot is interesting, looks like a container carved out of a solid rock.

My favorite is the first one. I have tried to grow that paddle plant called fantastic ,I think, 2 times. Both times it gets this power and spots on the leaves and dies Might try again. Love the photos Paul!

Paul, all of those photos are wonderful. Just looking at them is bringing on the desire to get out and play in the garden.
I have a number of containers that need to be redone this year. Thank you for the ideas.

Paul and all, I really love the pictures of your visits to the nursery. I made a visit to mine but did not take a camera with me. What I did was bought a couple of things home with me. Whistling

One was this little about 5 x 7 shadow box.
I will need suggestions on what to change come spring to keep the background current.

Sorry it is a bit blurry expecially when you enlarge it, but try as I might this was about the best I could do. Confused

Marilyn, that is so cute. Are they haworthia? Do you have a tripod for your camera?
That is going to be wonderful hanging on your patio fence this summer. Lovey dubby

I tip my hat to you.

I do have a tripod and will have to get it out and try that way. Very cumbersome.

It took awhile for me to get used to using a tripod. Now it is just automatic. It's the only way I can get clear photos now, my hands shake so much.

So today I made my best friend some kitchen containers for her southern facing windowsill.
In the far right container, I've separated all my three colours of Kalanchoe(pink, white, orange) and made a mixed pot of cuttings, so when it flowers it's multicoloured!
There's some of my Aloe Vera var. Chinensis in the middle. Some of my Ceropegia Woodii, aka String of Hearts in front of that. And some Crassula Ovata on the left.
For her garden table centre, I've put her some of my Sedum and my Pelargoniums.
Hope she likes them!

Hello hello my friends! I apologise for my absence. I've not been well and I've also started a bigger aquarium so I've been geeking out on aquarium plants and moss! ha ha
Today I spent all afternoon adding my old fishtank gravel on top of all my outdoor Semps. Didn't rinse it because I wanted the fresh water I pour on top to seep through and carry the nutrients down to the roots Smiling
Old aquarium water has really made my indoor plants really happy so I've decided to use it in the outside plants too Smiling little experiment for me! Not that I'll be watering the plants for much longer as autumn is upon us and Essex, UK, loves to rain the end of autumn! Hopefully it will hold out until end of October again before the frosts start!
And as always, here are photographs of my Semps and succulents currently :)

Pia what a creative way to use your old aquarium gravel and water. Everything is looking good, but my favorite photo is the one of the staircase. I just love what you have done to beautify it.
Hope you are feeling better, we sure missed you. Group hug
