My favourite succulents ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

This is an update on the growth of my succulent collection that I have been nurturing since I got back from Berlin a couple of months ago. By now I have a lovely collection of 20 odd little plants plus some experiments with propagation from the original ones. I love looking at in their tender early growth. These new ones are developing their own small … Continue reading My favourite succulents ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Echeveria Purpusorum ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

A month ago I bought this fantastic beauty from a local nursery in Chelsea, attracted by the intensity of colour and the fleshy consistency of the plant. These are tough creatures that are supposed to withstand the extremes of climate in a desert and the systematic lack of water. Which make them perfect for the lack of attention and care that i can provide with … Continue reading Echeveria Purpusorum ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

London parks are showcasing their beauty particularly at springtime, with colourful flowerbeds and wildlife taking advantage of warming temperatures for their reproductive rites. St James’s Park in central London is one of the best curated and interesting urban green areas, against the royal backdrop of Buckingham Palace and the scenic perspective of The Mall. Originally marshland in between royal residences, it was drained and landscaped … Continue reading St James’s Park, London ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ

Haworthia marumiana ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Some time ago I bought four little succulents and cacti and made a composition for my windowsill. By now these little plants have grown a lot, despite my neglect. It actually seems they thrive despite my lack of attention and very irregular watering. One in particular, the Haworthia marumiana, is extending its territory well beyond the place where it was originally planted and is now … Continue reading Haworthia marumiana ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

My new succulents ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŽ

    I spend so much time travelling for some extended periods of time that I have never managed to keep some decent plants in my flat. They inevitably die after a while for lack of watering. After my most recent period of absence from home I noticed some resistant succelent actually thrived during the winter with a lack of water. I decided then to … Continue reading My new succulents ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŽ
