Succulents in the summer garden...

You know you do it.

Admit it, we all know it's true.

Summer hits its high point - meaning the heat is emulating a boiling pot of oil or a fish under the broiler.  Or at least that's how it feels if you have to stand in it for more than mere moments.

So what do you do?

You go to the nursery, the big box, heck, even the grocery store. 

You don't think for a minute about exercising any restraint -- waiting until the weather is suitable for bringing home new plants -- nope.

You buy some cutesy succulent arrangement.

After all, it's the only thing you can imagine taking home and caring for in this sauna.

It's akin to buying tulips in the flower department of the grocery store before yours have popped up in the spring garden.

It's when you know you need that 1-800 number for Gardeners Anonymous.  You just can't control yourself.

Isn't this one adorable?!
