Today I’m grateful for succulents and the mysterious, beautiful symmetry they continue to grow into after being plucked or uprooted. Some varieties look like lotus flowers while others have nifty survival mechanisms for collecting water that lend the leaves unusual shapes, patterns or colors. They’re super forgiving, ultra instagrammable and the definition of resilience (some qualities that I should imbibe ). I’ve had a little garden of these travel with me through each of my homes and I’m constantly looking for new pieces to add to the collection. I always thought it was so cool that you could just pick a branch or piece, root it in some water and have a full plant in a few weeks! Here’s to nature!
