A little over a year ago, I got interested in succulents so thought I would start a garden just for them. Finding ideal containers, using rocks and other props, such as a squirrel skull, and a watering can, makes it more interesting, I think. The plants themselves are quite beautiful, and it's fun to group them in pleasing arrangements. Be on the lookout at garage sales and in thrift shops for interesting containers that can be used as planters. It should be easy to trade with gardening friends to build up your collection, but all gardening sources now have a wide variety of succulents available.
