Harmsworth Park, London ๐ŸŒณโ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The park featured in this post is not one of the many famous ones around London but it is the closest to my home and the one I go to very frequently for walks and runs. The park was created in 1934 when the land around the closed down Bethlem Hospital for mental health was bought and then donated to the London City Council by … Continue reading Harmsworth Park, London ๐ŸŒณโ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Haworthia cymbiformis ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

My recent passion for succulents is bringing me to develop a little collection of plants, that hopefully will survive my prolonged absences and can cheer me up every day as I admire how fast they are growing during the good season. From a specimen a bought only a couple of months ago, I have been able to propagate already a couple of rosettes and planted … Continue reading Haworthia cymbiformis ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

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

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
