From Tim Vojt: Bukiniczia cabulica

Everyone enjoyed Friday's succulent post so much, we thougtht we'd keep the party going! Here are some more from Tim, Melissa and Susan!

"This is a photo of my newest birthday present. My husband and daughter had it made by a local nursery worker. I love it!" ~Melissa Brannon

"I'm a 50+ year Florida gardener but am pretty new to succulents.  My first attempt at a dish garden is looking pretty good, I think!" ~Susan

"Jeff Calton certainly inspires everyone that follows GPOD, and his succulent submission inspired me to submit some more photos. I love succulents and desert plants, and although I am envious of those who can grow them in the ground year round, I really don't think I could be happy gardening in the desert. (Maybe I wouldn't mind zone 8.) Containers offer a great compromise. There are some cool plants from desert-type climates that can tolerate Ohio if sited properly, though. I've included two new additions to my gravel garden, as well as some tropical containers." ~Tim Vojt
