We have loads of succulents at home and on the studio roof garden, but I have never been very good at remembering their botanical names. However, the name of the Echevaria genus – named after the 18th century Mexican botanical artist Atanasio Echeverría y Godoy (thanks, Wikipedia) – has managed to stick.
That’s because all of a sudden, all my Echevaria have started to flower, all at once. Just look at those colours!
Oh, and by the way, if you like colours and tones and have time on your hands (or even if you don’t), download the awesome colour blending game app Blendoku. It’s compelling! Maddening!
