Succulent Garden

I thought it might be fun to plant a succulent garden. I was worried that the ground would be too wet and too rich for succulents in this spot, but so far they all look happy. It's planted over our old septic tank and there is a sprinkler nearby. I think the gravel keeps them all happy.

Bat Face Cuphea

This little shrub is a cousin to Mexican Heather. It is full of blooms right now and red color is brilliant. If you look at it closely, it really does look like a little bat. I have to get more of these this year.
