Hi Steemit!

This garden angel sculpture has been with me since I bought my first home in 2004. It was the first thing I got for my garden then.

Here it is in an old photograph taken of the angel in my first home. Gosh, the roses were so beautiful! I regretted selling that house. Oh well, we all have to move on to better things!.

I have potted succulents in the corner of my tiny front courtyard. The weather around here can be very hot and dry during summers, I find that succulents survive very well on this corner.

A common succulent, this is a Jade Plant. My Mom called it "money plant", and she insisted on planting them all over the front garden of our home. Growing up so used to seeing Jade Plants, I had to have them on the front courtyard of my home too!

If I want to follow my mommie's footsteps, I need to propagate the money plant so that I could populate the entire front courtyard, right?

These are all Jade plants, but the one in front of the photo below is a Hobbit Jade Plant, which my Mom called "Gumby".

This next one is a small-leaved succulent plant Elephant Bush, and Mommie referred to this plant as "Dwarf".

I love this next succulent that has wavy, paddle-like leaves of silvery blue, and it is called "Blue Dude".

I guess what I really want to share with you this beautiful and sublime Sunday is the fact that I am missing family.

I miss being surrounded by family... my two brothers, my Dad, and most especially my Mommie.

I know that they are all looking down on me from heaven.

And I know that my Mommie must be so proud of me that I carried on her love for succulents even if it is just in a small portion of my front yard.

Awesome looking Garden and Plants...
May 11, 2021... 2.5 Hollywood Time...


It's simple.

So many awesome succulents. My parent's neighbor in San Jose, CA. Had a whole backyard full of them, easily over 500 succulents.


Wow, over 500!!! That would be a sight!


Yeah, it was pretty awesome! It seemed like any spare open spot in the backyard had succulents!

Lovely picture, and thanks for sharing @silversaver888.

That's interesting @silversaver888, my Grandmother had a Jade plant as well.
I remember she called it a money tree too.... I always wondered why??🤔
