I managed to sit on my lawn with my broken left foot in its boot & repot some of my succulents (I got from my Mom about a month ago) into proper cactus/succulent soil. My husband laid out all my supplies & cleaned up for me 😊❤️😇

Most of these succulents were taken from various pots around my Mom's garden in Palm Coast, Florida approximately a month ago.

You broke yourself? Oh dear I'm so sorry. Puts a damper on summer then. Last summer I had shoulder surgery and couldn't do a thing. I hope you heal well and quickly.

@columbiariver ... yes I broke my left foot off my solid wood coffee table 😳. I am hobbling around in a boot & crutches & knee scooter. Trying to direct my 12 year old to help me LOL 😂. I managed to repot most of my succulents with help but my foot was sore after. I have another small project today that my son agreed to help me with again 😁... it's hard to get the gardener out of me! Although it's very very hot & humid now as I live in Central Florida 😓🔥🌴🌞

@columbiariver - my afternoon project with my youngest son involves repotting some Amaryllis bulbs, several small shrimp 🍤 plants, & a small Snow bush

That sounds delightful. Enjoy your Sunday. I'm going to go buy a new sprinkler! It's hot!

@columbiariver - it's wicked hot! I'm fortunate enough to have a sprinkler system with reclaimed water 💦. My porch plants I have to either drag the hose around or water with my large garden bucket nearly every day it's that humid here. I balance the watering can on top of the metal basket on my knee scooter and get the water out of the water basin we have in the garage. I'm adapting! 🤣

Oh you're too funny! I can see it now. We are going to be adding more water butt around our place so we can use more reclaimed water. Probably be essential if temps keep rising.

Got several new succulents this weekend & repotted them. It felt good to be back in the garden again after suffering with bronchitis for several weeks...I'm still feeling it & going on week 4.

The left one is a bear paw (cotyledon), the right one is a coppertone sedum, the bottom ones are crassula commutata (stacking crassula of some sort)

Wow! Impressive knowledge 😁... thank you 😊...weird as I didn't like succulents that much a few months ago but they're addictive!!!
