I find that for my life, succulents are the perfect plants. This time of the year in Florida we have blazing heat when everything dries up, followed by tropical downpours. In the winter we may have temperatures below freezing. We spend a lot of time traveling in the summer, so if I want my patio to look good I have to buy plants that are tough. These babies seem to fill the bill. So, this is my little ode to succulents, the amazing plants that come in thousands of shapes and spieces.
