🌵🌵 THE SUCCULENT AND CACTUS LADY - I am a naturalist and gardener living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. This is a record of my love affair and obsession with cacti and succulents.
🌿 I've been gardening ever since a child, when I spent time with my father in his vegetable garden. But my fascination with Echeverias started in the 1980's, when my father gave me a pot with five Echeverias, which turned out to be E. imbricata. At first I wasn't much interested in them and planted them in some obscure corner of the garden and completely forgot about them. How great was my surprise when, a couple of months later, I noticed that they had spread and made a beautiful display - I was hooked!
