Travel theme: Circles

Ailsa’s travel theme for the week is “circles”. I was a bit surprised at how few usable pictures I had (partly because I’ve used some of them in other photo challenges – the subway photo I used just last Tuesday would fit right in here!)

After some searching, I found a group of pictures I took almost a year ago at the Philadelphia Flower Show. Here’s my assortment of spherical little succulents – their ancestors had a long history of surviving in deserts, so they balloon themselves with as much water as possible.  (Click on any of the pictures to see the gallery with larger images.)

  1. Perfect, I love succulents, they are able to cope with my inconsistency!

    • Good point – I went through a period of trying to grow difficult plants years ago, and I want to apologize to all the unfortunate roses and ferns and things I killed in the process. And succulents are some of the most improbable looking plants around – not necessarily pretty, but memorable.
