For the past few days, I haven’t had a moment to breathe, let alone post something. But when my amazing new succulents arrived yesterday from Monkeys Always Look, I was so happy, I had to share.

The one that looks like a heart split down the middle belongs to the Argyroderma (meaning “silver skin”) genus, and is commonly referred to as a “living stone.” The other plant (that looks to me like a bunch of little sea snakes swimming together) is known as “baby toes” (genus Fenestraria meaning “window”).

I am absolutely in love with them.
