18/30 – Succulents

Flowering succulent
Succulents are very easy to propagate and in the last few months I gathered a small collection by breaking bits of the succulents growing in the nature strips. Some of them are flowering at the moment. I wish I had time during the daylight hours to sketch them outside as most are in the pots that are too large to be easily carried inside.
One is still in a tiny pot, waiting to be replanted. It isn’t flowering, but the colours of the leaves are gorgeous, so in it came to be sketched.
