My Thumb is Getting a Little Greener

I’ve been feeling blah lately. Winter seemed to drag on FOREVER … and now that spring is here, I can’t seem to get out of my funk.

I finally made it to Home Depot the other day to browse the flower selection. But instead of finally picking up some color for the yard, I fell in love with several little succulents.

I brought them home and finally got around to planting them today. I found some great glass containers at Home Goods. Then I poured in some river rock …

then just added some potting soil.

What do you think of the little guys?

I’ve never heard of succulents with these names. That intrigued me! I guess I choose my plants like I choose my wine … by the name on the label! 😉

  1. Brilliant! I love succulents. I love what you did with them. Succulents are everywhere this year–in nurseries. I guess they’ve become the in thing. I love your last one the best. I do love the jade plant though…~amy
