Succulents are supposed to be easy to keep alive but I don’t really have much success.

Partially because I have cats that love to dig in the dirt and uproot them…

and partially because I forget them and they languish from lack of water in the brutal Texas heat.

California I discovered, when I visited my film-maker son in February, is a natural place for succulents to flourish.

I do feel a little despondent, as I begin to think I’m finally turning the corner on succulent husbandry,


when he sends me these luscious specimens growing outside his townhouse.



They do rather put mine to shame don’t you think?
