I still maintain that it's a humble collection! It's not nearly a third of what I wish I had.

And, yes, that is an Aloe bloom.

And here's my queen's tears in bloom last year. Getting shoots already.

What a nice selection of plants and succulents Kim.

If I can ask, how do you make that nice box around some of your photos with the plant name in the box. That looks very professional. I ask because I doubt I will ever quit learning while on the computer.

Also, on those you don't have IDs posted, do you know what they are? Or are you looking for identification?

Thanks for sharing, Kristi

Yes, thanks I had noticed that after I asked. You can click on the cultivar and it takes you to the plant database.
I do still wonder how it was transferred intact though... perhaps cut & pasted. It does look very nice and professional.

Thanks, it'sw taken me quite a long time to collect them, over 8 years. The 12th pic is of an Elkhorn Euphorbia Cristata.

Hi Kristi, I got the names on the top of some of the images after uploading them into the plant database. As for the others, I'm in the process of identifying as much of them as I can. I always try to keep the identification markers when I buy a plant but I don't really have them in a database of my own. Got to get to that one of these days. There are a few that I have never been able to identify, though.

Well I do agree, you have a nice selection of succulents and look forward to seeing more of your photos.
I have no doubt the generous folks here could help you with any needed IDs. It is always fun to face a challenge.
Thanks again for sharing them. Kristi
