This may be cute, but who'd name their baby "Sedum Nussbaumeranum Autumn Glow?"

And the name of this one (Echeveria Powder Blue) makes me thing of "the powder room."

And since I'm still posting plant photos, I thought this would be a good time to give all of you words of advice:

1. Keep a close watch on scilla in your garden.

and 2. ALWAYS listen to Pat's advice! She warned me a year or so ago that scilla could be invasive, and I thought "nah! Not in North Dakota! What's 2 or 3 or 6 little plants?" But now it's everywhere! I foresee many an hour of digging the pretty little plants, and their pod like root structures, from my garden in the weeks ahead :(.

O.K. I guess I won't be planting scylla . . . As much as I love flowers, I don't like high-maintenance gardens. Summer is just too short to spend it constantly weeding and taming perennials. Too bad, it's such a pretty color!

You sure found yourself some beauties. I remember spending lots of time trying to get rid of some succulents that were taking over my garden one year. What a pain!
