New Succulents

08_22_2016_17

My sister made us a really gorgeous wedding cake with fondant succulents on the top, and after we ate it I thought it would be nice to get a “wedding” succulent we can continue to enjoy and that would serve as a reminder of our ceremony (I actually have 3 African violets that were propagated from flowers used at my Mom’s wedding ceremony as well). Of course I couldn’t pick just one, so I got two to go with the small haworthia I bought J a few weeks before the wedding. I got the last lonely Hen and Chicks (sempervivum) at the garden centre and a kalanchoe thyrsiflora (paddle plant) that looks like the succulent design on the wedding cake. I planted them all into pots I grabbed last time I was at the thrift shop, they look pretty nice. Here’s hoping they do well!
