We do get spring here too, but not for a couple of months. So in the meantime, let's looks at some of my garden photos from last year featuring succulents.
Succulents hardy for my area, include hens and chicks, and a variety of tall and sprawling sedums in an array of colors. The annual, moss roses, would also fall into the succulent category.
Since succulents take high heat, not much soil, and little water, they are perfect candidates for some garden art.
|This is an old iron bird bath. I didn't cut any holes in it so it sits under my eaves and gets watered sparingly.|
|This is the side of my deck. On the far right I have a little vignette of kitchen and farm tools with hens and chicks and sedum and alyssum.|
|Close up of the outdoor vignette, with ricers, and old planter.|
|This is also next to my deck, mostly sedums, and two types of thyme. Also an outdoor vignette with old farm tools.|

|Another view that includes a chippy chair, old kerosene heater with coffee pot impatiens, and browalia in a enamelware pot.|
|This garden has succulents planted in three metal wheels and is surrounded by pea gravel. It was a banner year for moss roses.|
