New Succulents

Our first Saturday with no set plans was great!  My husband went to the coast to fish, so me and the girls slept in until 9:30...that in itself was awesome!!!  I decided to put rocks in the new bed that I planted under the tree in the back because the cat deterant stuff that I put down did absolutely nothing to keep the neighbors cats from doing their business.  I needed more rocks, so we made the trip to Lowes.  And if I'm going to Lowes, it's pretty much a given that I'll find something I didn't have.  Today I found a small pot of 'Firesticks'...mine didn't survive the winter and it's a must have companion for my Pencil Cactus that my neighbor gave me.  I also found a cute little Echeveria Peacockii that's fixing to bloom, a Sendeveria that's has a dark red/burgandy hugh and a 'String of Tears' Senecio Herreianus.  It looks like my String of Pearls, only they're shapped like a teardrop, they also are called String of Beans, I think. 

I didn't find the 'Mother of Millions' Kalanchoe that I've been hunting, but I did find an African Violet with curly leaves.  They're another favorite of mine, but somehow I killed all the ones I used to have and got side-tracked with the succulents.  We stopped at Milbergers and I've decided that I need to get my girls out more often...they have a chicken/rooster there and they both were shocked that a chicken/rooster was walking around a plant nursery! There's a catcus/succulent nursery in Schertz, that might have what I'm hunting, but I promised my mother that I'd wait until she gets here before going...good thing she'll be here on Saturday!!

Enjoyed watching the girls on the trampoline and then the slip and slide with friends...we've got to get a's way to hot here already, and it's only going to get worse!

Enjoy your Sunday's!


  1. Hi Mandy! If you want to send me your address I would be happy to send you some rooted Mother of Millions plants!!! My e-mail is

  2. Thanks, Julie! You know how it goes, when you're looking for something it's never available and once you find it, it's everywhere! I'll email you and then if you'll give me yours once my Donkey Ear plantlets are a little bigger, I'll get some over to you so you can add that one to your collection!
