Succulents




Have you heard of these pretty succulent gardens?  This one hangs on the wall.  It is called a vertical succulent wall garden.  I NEVER thought of succulents as pretty...or colorful.  But they are and I love them.





If you go to Etsy and type in succulent wreath you will find many choices, including do it yourself projects.

Who'd a thunk it?


My friend Ryan posted this quote on FB yesterday.  Thanks Ryan.

  1. When I saw the title of your post my first response was that I don't like 'em. I was wrong. That wreath is AWESOME. I don't think I would go as far as making a bouquet out of them, but I really like the designs you have shown.

    I was wrong. I like 'em!

  5. I absolutely love the wreath! I think I am going to make a goal of making one tomorrow : ). Wish me luck! I will have Naji and Bria racing around with Kaish, so I am not sure I will be able to, but I am definitely going to try! : )

    Happy Easter.

  6. I have seen pictures of succulents popping up all over the place and LOVE THEM! Are they easy to care for or a challenge? Like sun or shade? I really want to learn about growing them :-)

    Our snow over the past couple of days feels much worse than a slap! But your quote has encouraged me and now I will be anticipating a great big SMOOCH in May! :-)

    Blessings,
    Tammy

    Do you remember the little rock wall in the front yard of my Seattle house? (the one Emma leapt around after the Nutcracker) It was full of succulents. They're so easy!

  10. I've started to love succulents, after thinking they were my Grandma's style of plant for a while. They grow beautifully in my living room window. I need to add some red/purple ones!
