A Mystery Plant and a View

When I first saw this plant I thought it was a fake, but then I touched it and discovered that it’s some sort of succulent.

Do you recognise this plant?? I tried looking it up but had no luck.

Nevertheless, speaking of plants, here’s a vineyard view from the southern Okanagan’s Black Sage Bench. The grapes are plump and nearing harvesting.

Today’s grapes become tomorrow’s wines. 🙂

Happy Saturday.

  1. I am at a loss when it comes to succulents. Hoping they get a good grape harvest this year. I get the feeling we will all need the comfort of a good wine over the next few months. Happy Saturday Lynette. Allan

    1. I agree. I feel that we should start sending cases of wine to the people in the Atlantic provinces so they have a little something to look forward to after all the clean-up. What a horrific storm! It does look like there will be a good crop this year as last year’s was quite affected by smoke taint. Cheers.

    1. Hahaha. 🙂 Agreed. We recently moved to a new home (in the downtown where it’s very walkable to everything) and now have a wine room with some nice reds percolating along. And then there’s the lovely summer sippers. Good rosés and whites, most of them local. Lots of people come here to hike AND sample wine. Cheers!

  2. Well, here’s the joke: pretty sure that’s the succulentI have flourishing on my window sill (bright, but no direct sunshine). I don’t know the name Bought it some 4-5 years ago as a sprig at Canadian Tire, keep snipping it back so it remains low & bushy not tall & straggly, dole out a smidge of water once a week. It’s a good example of what a friend cheerfully (but very gratefully) calls “thug plants” — sturdy old plants that just soldier on.

    1. Thug plants – I love that! This one was sitting in full southern sun on a balcony, so they must be rather tough (nothing indirect for this one)! Nice that you have Darth Vader’s plant matching along. 😉 Cheers.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
