Succulents In The Rain
Photograph - Outdoor Color Photo
Rainy day image of a variety of succulents, planted in a bowl on a rustic patio table on the Texas Gulf Coast. The most prominent succulent in this image is a favorite. To me it looks like a ruffled form of escheveria. I love the orange edges on it that match the orange cushions on the rocking chairs.
Succulents, or crass, are a group of plants that store water in their leaves, stems and roots. The leaves tend to be thick and fleshy, but some genera and species have thicker leaves than others. They tend to thrive in dry and slightly humid climates.
These pretty plants come in a wide variety of species. Some are related to cactus, but sometimes it’s not real clear which are and which are not. In any case, succulents provide a delightful, low-maintenance visual treat, especially when appreciated close-up as these are. Ideal for a sunny spot on a patio, and pretty in the rain as they catch the raindrops. Droplets can be seen in this image.
