My Succulent Corner

Succulents are a boon for a gardener residing in an area like mine as summers are generally very harsh overhere and b'coz of their unique capability of holding water in their leaves ,they can withstand very high temperatures and days of drought with ease. Of all the succulents 'Haworthias' are my favorite.The complex geometric arrangement of fleshy leaves gives rise to intricate patterns and designs characterstic of each species.

Those are very handy plants to have where you live. In my country these plants would either drown of freeze to death. Here we can only keep them indoors.

BTW Loved your story about saving the trees in India movement!

What beautiful succulents you grow. Some of the plants in your previous blogs could only be grown as house plants in Scotland. A beautiful baby daughter too, I see.
