Dallas is Hot in the Summer

So they plant succulents to beat the heat.

When Dallas has terrible triple-digit heat waves coupled with dry skies, my thoughts always turn to succulents.

Converting to a garden of succulents occurs to me when I’m standing with the garden hose in hand, sweat rolling down my face.

Now you know that people with hoses in Dallas sweat a lot. At least, that’s what I take from the article in question. Maybe if you click through and read the rest you’ll get more out of it than just that. Like this bit:

I’ve been hungrily reading a new book, Hardy Succulents: Tough Plants for Every Climate by Gwen Moore Kelaidis (Storey Publishing, $19.95 ). There are fetching glossy photos by Saxon Holt on almost every page that deepen my yearning for not just containers of succulents but whole garden beds thick with them.

We agree.
