If you've been hanging around a while, you know how much I like succulents. There were a fair number of nice ones at the 2018 Fort Wayne Home Show. But they were all part of a commercial booth. That means they were for sale, which is great, except the issue for me is that there is little effort made to identify succulents for sale beyond "succulent."
I can made some genera IDs, but that's about it. Here's a nice planter filled with various Sedum (and maybe Sempervivum- or maybe all Sedum)
This is an Echeveria, sometimes called a cabbage Echeveria. I've killed a few.
Here's a really nice Aeonium. When they get this big they look like rosettes on top of a naked stalk. I didn't really show that in the picture, because I was so captivated by the spots. I like it.
I have no idea what this is, but it's funky!
This is probably some kind of aloe, but it's pretty amazing that it agreed to be in perfect bloom for the show.
Finally, just another nice collection. Most of these are Sedum, but there are some other things, possibly a Haworthia.
Finally, today's sunset seemed unusual to me. And, oddly enough, can you believe I've never shown you a sunset in March before? Anyway, I loved how blue everything was, but look at how the rising billows of clouds more or less parallel the tree line!
