    Along the side of the barn, huge boulders have been stacked into a wall. Tucked into the crevices and pocket spaces are many varieties of hardy succulents.

    Succulents are planted in the cracks of the barn’s wall of stacked boulders.

    Rusty, crusty items such as old wagons and bikes are a wonderful contrast to the defined, florets and whorls of the sedums and succulents they are planted with.

    Everywhere you look are succulents in arrangements for sale. If you don’t find what you want in all these lovely plantings, the owners will graciously plant up a container of your choosing or one you’ve brought from home!

    There’s a small greenhouse used to start and keep the less cold-hardy succulents during the winter months. But most are out on their summer vacation all around the farm today.

    Under the grape vine draped pergola on the porch, many houseplants and annuals are tucked into repurposed containers. My favorite was the vintage laundry tubs filled with individual pots of shade-lovers.

    And, how about this gazebo made from an old corn crib? Isn’t it wonderful? Planted with several different kinds of Clematis, it provides a cool,shady place from which to survey the farm. Filled with repurposed doors, shutters, tables and seats, this is a great place to sit a spell and soak up inspirations.

    I know I’ll be back! Country Lane Succulents is a must-see destination if you get the chance!
