I'm in love. I don't know if I've mentioned this yet or not. I could do a quick search on here to check, but I'm pooped and don't want to put forth any extra effort tonight. So even if I've already told you, let me tell you a-gain. I am in love with succulents. Here's the wiki page, in case you're totally lost.
From what I gather (and again, I'm not firing on all cylinders tonight) they are a special type of plant that retains a lot of moisture and grows best without much attention at all. Aloe Vera plants fall into this family. I had one. I also had a Jade Tree, and I think they also are in the fam, although I can't confirm 100%; I'm about 87% on that one.
I'm sure there's all sorts of cool information about them, but here's what I like best: you can break off a piece and put it in dirt, and it grows a new plant!! Isn't that just the most super cool thing ever?? I think so. However, that fact is also the reason that I don't currently have any. Allow me to explain; the fact that they can reproduce without any real effort from a person causes me to balk at paying $2.50 for one small plant. I just can't do it. I mean, I could, I have that much moola in my pickle jar alone (what? where do you keep your spare change?), but I just... can't. My conscience won't suffer it.
So for now, I'll dream and imagine and fill up this space with the coolest pictures of them I can find.
Finally, through this little process here, I have learned 3 things. (1) I like succulents just as much as I thought I did, (2) Blogger Image inserter-thingy pays absolutely no attention to copyright on photos, and (3) I'm still hung up on the at-least-3-items-in-a-list thing.
I hope you have enjoyed the most recent installment of low-impact blogging. BTW, my Buddy was a regular chatty Cathy this morning, and then turned into silent Sue on the ride home again. But, there was no solitare played today, so I'm calling it a win. I'm off to start my weekend now. Mazel Tov.
Stingy to the max,
