Have mercy

Hello, friends,

While outside to check the mail I noticed a poor plant in sad need of help. It seems as if this was one marked down for quick sale at the grocery store last year. Clearly, it was grateful to be saved and grew a lot after being rescued from the manager's special shelf. 
A lot, all in height. Meet Mr. Lanky and his partner, Ms. Scraggly. Obviously, that urn has been too small for a very long time. 
Some of this, and a large pot later, we have this:
Much more scope for growth now, don't you agree? That's my good deed for the day.

It's fun to think about filling more pots and separating succulents now that spring seems to be well and truly arrived, since we don't have much space to plant in the ground here. Are you also daydreaming about what's going to bloom at your house this year? 

Have a wonderful weekend!

I can just imagine your plants stretching out their roots and sighing with pleasure in their new digs! You'll have to post before and after pics, maybe in August, to show how much they grow this summer.
