A Charming Reminder

Last May I attended a fundraiser for a non-profit organization that I support. For a centerpiece on the table was this little square dish of polished rocks with three echeveria in the center. I purchased the centerpiece and brought it home and as I was bringing it into the house from the car I got distracted and placed in on the bench by the front door. It has lived in that same spot for eight months now and has grown three or four times as large and even bloomed. What a charming and carefree reminder of the event I attended.

Luckily you live in climate where it could thrive. If I had done that it would be dead!

Dear Sheila, I love to buy plants or garden ornaments to remind me of special trips or events. One year on mothers' day my daughter and I visited a wonderful public garden which has since closed. But the ZeeZee (Zamioculcas Zamiifolia) houseplant I bought there brings back beautiful memories. Your succulent is gorgeous! P x
