Defense mechanisms. We all have them. The lack of plants in Arizona has surely forced me to be fascinated with succulents. When I lived in Kansas I could honestly care less about them. Or maybe that had more to do with the fact that I was a KID and obsessed with boys and makeup. The world may never know.
Well regardless of how it started, I love them now. They come in so many colors and shapes, and can be arranged in stunning ways. Here are some of my recent finds:

I love love looooovvveeee it!! I guess you can make this with chicken wire?? All the colors… ALL THE COLORS! I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!
and then of course you have MY succulents:
(the two in front… the left is Stella, the right has not presented a name yet ;])
In mah little owlie there. I actually separated the one that is in the right red pot above, and put half of it in the owl. Can I tell you that I about had a heart attack ripping the two sections apart? I don’t see how you can destroy a plant like that and still get them to grow afterward. But it seems to have worked.
My ever-so-talented Mother planted this cute little pot for me while she was here, using clippings from the yard and some that a friend brought over. They’re actually planted in a trash can that I had in college. Resourceful! I guess these aren’t all “succulents” as much as they are “cacti” but you get the point. They’re small.
You don’t have to live in the desert to keep succulents. I guess you can grow them in anything. I am not even going to attempt to tell you how to care for them based on the fact that I have only kept plants alive for a whopping 3 months now. But it appears that you have to water them. And give them sunlight. But not too much of either… or they will diiiieeee. That ambiguous enough for you?
