It's hot! There are days in a row that are hitting the high 20's (if you're in metric) or in the 80's (if you're not).
I'm all for summer as long as there is some shade somewhere, that I can get out of the sun. Climate change is not going away.
However, it will end, as summers always do, and then we'll have to look at bringing some of those gorgeous happy plants indoors. Think about getting your grow lights set up before you really need to.
While you're at it, you may want to get into some different plants too, like some of the fascinating airplant - watch out though, these are just as addictive as other succulents, and soon you may find yourself collecting them too;
or find some more succulents to add to your collection.
There are some for every taste, whether you love the look of the chubby leaves of Echeveria, or the warty stems of some Euphorbia. They are amazing in their variety.
