Bear's Paw

A few weeks ago I went to Lowes and found this cute succulent! It's called Bear's Paw (Cotyledon tomentosa). The name comes from the shape of the leaves.

Another succulent that I have is Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum tectorum). I planted it a few weeks ago in a clay pot that Dave and I painted.

The pot is painted with the colors of the Italian flag (Dave is Italian). We got the idea to paint clay pots when we visited St. Louis, Missouri last year. We spent alot of time in the Hill district of St. Louis which is a section of town that is densely populated with Italians. Even the fire hydrants are painted the Italian flag colors! There were so many good Italian restaurants there! Mama Campisi's was so good and very affordable!

So thats where we got the idea!
