It's been a wonderful year of planting succulents, getting pricked by cacti and seeing my little succulent family growing.
Here's wishing your new year is full of succulent love, joy and inspiration!
Happy New Year!

Echeveria imbricata is a species of flowering succulent in the Crassulaceae family, native to semi-desert habitats in Mexico. Also known as the Mexican Snowball, this frost-tender succulent rewards with lots of beautiful flowers when it gets enough sun and water.
With striking colour and texture, this fast growing Succulent is a great choice for ground-cover or a rock garden. Tight blue-grey rosettes freely produce offsets to form dense mounds. Bright pink blooms on tall stems are adored by hummingbirds and, in South Africa (we don’t have hummingbirds) Sunbirds and insects. Attractive in containers or as a house plant.
