I've always loved the idea of having plants around the house but didn't want to bring something home and kill it. I bought some succulents (in the first and sixth photo) at a plant sale here in Norfolk last year and kept them alive for a whole year and counting. And they actually grow and look happy. So I wanted some more for windowsills and on the balcony and have ended up with these. I'm really enjoying learning about them and watching them grow. They have been a nice distraction to keep up with lately.
