Succulents in Close-Up

Wandering around Buff’s garden the other day, I was struck by how her succulent collection looked close-up.

I find succulents to be boring and often ugly when viewed from a distance yet looking closely, there is beauty in their form and delicate colours.

    And the dogs don’t wreck them – unlike the coleus!

  5. I agree with you, succulents are beautiful and captivating up close! I love them near or afar, though. We have a native succulent sedum that grows no more than four inches high when blooming and coats flat rock faces with a carpet of yellow this time of year.
    Nice photos!

  6. Thanks, czgyny. There are some beautiful ones out there although it seems there are very few Australian varieties – strange in the driest continent in the world.
