My small collention of plants in 2013

My small succulent collection in spring 2013

Crassula lycopodioides

Agave attenuata "lion's tail"

Sadly some of my succulent plants died after last years rains. In England you have to be so careful with succulent plants. During the warm months I take the succulents out into the garden as succulents need to get as much sunshine as possible and when it gets cold I bring the plants back inside.
