Oh, to be able to work because you wanted to and not because you HAD to.

Rose loves water… just not from her water bowl.
OMG, just love this!
I was lucky enough to kitten sit this little guy over the weekend.
This is a photo from my friend’s garden near Cape Town, South Africa. It’s nearly the Spring Equinox there. I love this beautiful plant, which she tells me is called “crassula multicava” or “fairy crassula”. The website plantzafrica says this about them:
Crassulas are often small, curiously formed plants that are favourites for succulent collectors. Crassula multicava is one of those plants that can be used for almost all purposes and this is without a doubt why it has become such an important garden plant throughout South Africa as well as in other countries. There are not many shade-loving succulents that create as beautiful a display as C. multivava. The uniformity, compactness and neat, low-growing appearance of this plant is much enjoyed by the gardener and landscaper alike. The plants are also very long lived and respond well to pruning when overgrown.
