The other day I was in a garden store and came across, what I found to be disturbing display of painted succulents. My first thought, " why would you even want to paint them? And second, your slowly suffocating them." I mean, just look at the photo above, the leafs are literally falling off.

The beauty that comes from the plant is yes, their natural design but even more so, the life force energy is shares with you by simply being in your presence and you theirs. In fact, plants have the ability to communicate to one another: Plant Talk
