It’s Getting Worse

Remember how the other day I was rambling on about how my electric tea kettle was the best thing to happen to me in a really long time? Well that hasn’t changed. I’ve used it a gazillion times since then and if it’s possible, I love it even more. So yeah, the old lady spirit is still strong with this one. In fact it’s getting worse/stronger.

Do you know what I’ve been spending my lunch/work breaks doing? Reading about gardening, foraging for succulents at the cove (who does that?!), and visiting nurseries/garden centers. I’ve barely glanced at twitter or Facebook this week.

Who am I?

Anyway, here are some of the potted fruits of my labor. Not anywhere close to done and i haven’t taken pictures of the cacti or irises, but you get the idea.

On the non-old lady front, I’ve still been eating ridiculous amounts of food, drinking plenty of wine, and rocking out to Bowie.

Just Like…A Baby’s Bum?

Yep! This is my newest succulent, an Argyroderma pearsonii, or as it is commonly referred to as a Baby’s Bum. I love it.

This ladies and gentlemen, was the highlight of a lovely, relaxing weekend. And I am not ashamed to admit it.

p.s. if you have any knowledge or advice about succulents I would love you to kick it my way! My garden is puny right now but I hope to build it up this summer and any helpful advice would be most appreciated!
