More Succulents!

I've got a huge addiction now to succulents. I bought a bunch more yesterday. I made 3 more hypertufa pots on Thursday. It will be awhile before they will be ready to plant in. They have to cure. Not exactly sure how long they are suppose to cure as I've searched on the Internet extensively about making these pots. It's anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 months before you can plant in them. So I'm gonna go with 2 months. I made 4 of them about a month ago. So in about a month I will plant. I wanted to buy the succulents now as I'm sure in another month they will be gone. So here are a few more that I bought. I just think they have the neatest shapes, textures and colors.

I also took a few pics of some of plants growing in my yard.

I absolutely love coleus too! The bright colors are just gorgeous! Here is my favorite one.

Had fun with the Maco setting on my camera today! This is a pansy.

Variegated Lantana

Cranesbill Geranium

Hosta Leaf. I love the ones that have a lot of white in them

Pink Spiderworth



White Goats Beard

And then today I decided to paint my hosta leaf bird bath. All I have to do now is put a sealer on it.

Well that's it for now. I think I will spend the rest of the day inside. It's 88º right now and should hit 90º later on today. Can't believe just the other day it was only in the 60's.


  1. Tami,

    Nice work with the macro setting...I love taking pictures of flowers using it...such detail. The pots sound neat although I have never heard of them before now. Guess I'll have to do a google search and see what turns up.

  2. Absolutely love the hosta bird bath you made! Fabulous. I want to plant some succulents in my old birdbath, but I'm afraid they will drown because it has no drainage. Not sure I could drill through stone and metal to make holes, it's a mosaic.

  3. Your garden must be gorgeous! Obviously you have a green thumb.

  4. Your photos are lovely. You have a lot going on in your garden right now! I love your hosta leaf bird bath. Looks like you are in for another scorcher today. Good luck with the succulents in your new pots.

  5. Can't wait to see your hypertufa all planted. And lucky you with the weather - we've had heavy rain, and even snow the last few days! Summer will NEVER come!

  6. Hi Tammy, thanks for stopping by and good luck on my giveaway. I too love succulants. Have a great day, T

  7. Tammy,
    RE: hypertufa curing. We make a lot of them at The Garden Elves ( and I've planted mine after a week with no ill effects on my plants. Mainly I've found the time is critical for curing the tufa-at least 7 days. Hope you have good luck!
