They are all beautiful. Don't be sorry, you just do what you feel natural doing. We just curious as t what the plants look like. I'm a nosey plant lover, I love to nose around in the plants to see what I like and don't like.
I have the Andromischus cristata, in an east windown and it is not blooming but it looks pretty good.

Could your last image be Graptopetalum paraguayense? (scroll down for additional images)

Haven't taken any pictures just yet, had to go around and gather up some of my succulents, didn't realize I had so many. Got a little warm out there in the sun so came in to regroup.

I have this long old cast iron sink that DH set on top of bricks against the brick fence in back of the yard. My SIL had it for years and when she asked if I wanted it I couldn't wait to get it home. I tried regular flowers in it and they really looked pretty, but I think the sink is too shallow for most plants. Decided to try the succulents in it this time. Will get a picture of that too.

Thanks Sue - that's really close except for the watermarks - mine doesn't seem to have those, so I wonder if they fade after a while. These didn't get very good care, you could tell. After looking at some of the other pics, it definitely could be - they grow so differently in varying conditions. Okay, tentative id - Graptopetalum paraguyense! I'll compare it again once it's been growing here or a while.

I wasn't sure if I should start a new thread or keep it all together!

Fall is coming - we've had a couple of cooler nights (no frost yet, fingers crossed!) so the big migration from the greenhouse to the spare bedroom and any other bright window sill has started.

I brought these up today - a whole wheelbarrow full!Thumb of 2010-08-31/BlueFox/5fd18d

You can't see this succulent very well, but the small long green leaves have white spots on them, the bottom looks like a small onion and it does ave a long tall stem with flower on it. Don't remember just what the flower looks like though.

I can leave my cactus and succulents out year round, but have to make sure that when it rains they don't become water logged. I have no idea what any of the names of them are, never tried to research them. Rolling my eyes.

I think the Leopard part is entirely appropriate!

They got the cutest blooms too.

Yes and they grow good too. I repotted some and they love it. Now got to give couple away, not going to have room for everything.

Thank you Calif_Sue for IDing my plant. The one's over in DG database look so nice, but take better care of mine.

BlueFox I love the ceropegia woodi, which I've always known it to be called a rosary plant or string of hearts. I love the Hearts Entangled name. We always used it inside for a house plant, of course that was in Minnesota where it gets bitter cold in winter. A DGer sent me a slip of it and it is growing on my kitchen window sill, but I do want to get some more. I never know why the names are, just lke the looks of the plants, but now think I'm going to learn all their names.

The common names are sometimes really fun, and I love the ones that are descriptive and unmistakable. I usually use the botanical name so there are no mistakes - especially when I buy a plant.

Oops, I am sorry I forgot about that Charleen. It is growing long now so I have to curt it up in the pot,. I didn't know it would grow from one pot to another, how interesting. Can I just snip a piece off and start a new one. Geez, I wish I would keep better track of who sent me what. I never claimed to be any way near being organized, my excuse. *Blush*

Yes or just pin it down at one of the little joints and it will take root. I have it trailing to the floor.
We trade so much stuff, the only reason I know that is I wrote it down by your address so I could remember.
I keep my address here in front of me in a notebook with the sprials on it. Real handy. I'm not organized very well but I got that cause I am forgetful. It's my brains.... Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
