I almost feel like when company I love leaves. Smiling

Not sure about when it will be next year. Hope we don't get preempted. There are so many great plant groups to be covered. If we do, we can contribute to whatever the other plants are. In fact we should be doing that anyway.
We all grow other types of plants, so look at what is coming up for the rest of the year. Hurray! Hurray!

Why can't we just make this the year of the Semp? Or at least Semp month? How about Echeveria week?

I agree on Succulent Week. Semp month would be so indulgent; raffle would have to have 25 prizes; and Year of the Semp would be from which calendar, Clint? Blinking

And I actually already have a few succulents I could post pics of! Still no semps though, except my few I have scattered about outside that I've had for years from my mother. I just can't seem to get anywhere to looks right now. Garden is taking up almost all my time.

Arlene, what a sweet photo in your avatar.

We would love to see your semps. Coming from your mom makes them very special.
And here is a link where you can share photos of your other succulents. We love them all. Thumbs up

Lynn, thank you. My granddaughter. She loves picking Grandma's flowers. She knows they're just for her! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

At this point I only have about 6-8 semps left. But I'll try and take a couple of pics. They are not in permanent homes. Just threw them somewhere when I moved because we brought a Subaru wagon and a trailer both full of plants when we came and I just had to put them all somewhere.

Is a Christmas/Thanksgiving cactus considered a succulent as well?

That is a cute avatar Arlene! I consider it a succulent, but it may not technically be one??
