Pensive Tuesday: Lithops Fashions
This Tuesday post really isn't so pensive, because it's about fashion! The new crop of Lithops is heading to the nurseries here in the USA, and I've spotted a trend.
French Green and French Blue.
French Green and Blue Lithops
These very peaceful, subdued, and quiet colors are the only ones I've seen on several dozen Lithops so far. Last year, every Lithops was blush pink and brick red. Now am I imagining it, or are there fashions for Lithops?? If so, I'm calling 2013 the Year of the French Lithops. They're so lovely, I've even started painting with these colors, just a few mini canvases so far. Grays are fun!
Have you noticed fashions for your favorite plants in your neighborhood? If so, what are you calling for 2013?
