All Hearts Today


Echeveria gigantea, vaguely heart like form.


Sebastian’s star, getting close.


Sparkly paper + Japenese Maple branch + white thread. Full heart!

Yep, hearts are indeed full around here.

Hope this day has been full of love for you too.


Baby Succulent Delights

Our roof deck has not gotten much use in the past few years since O was born, as evidenced by this lounge being eaten by the Japanese Maple. We had assumed it’s only job recently has been to provide the cat with yet another place to sleep.




Apparently the lounge made just the right conditions to hatch a tiny crop of succulent volunteers! Must have been seeds from the containers on the lower part of the deck. We have volunteers of all kinds in the garden, but these are the first succulents I have noticed.


I love when plants reward my lack of attention to proper housekeeping with treasures like these.
