I had a nice centerpiece on my dining room table but I wanted to change things up a bit. This blue and white Chinese foot bath had been in one of the bathrooms for a while and I decided that it would make the perfect container. But what to put in it? I Orchids look wonderful, but I have done that before.
This time I decided on succulents ~ perfect! So I went shopping in the garden. These are all cuttings, frankly I was surprised that I had so many varieties to choose from. I took a used plastic six-pack container and filled it with potting soil; it fit perfectly into the bowl. Then I 'planted' my cuttings. I will be able to keep them watered and because this room has a skylight they should get an ample amount of light to grow.
I love succulents, I think of them as garden jewelry, they are such wonderful accent plants. However I never before had though to bring them in the house and use them this way. Now I am thinking of other spots where I could use them in lieu of a traditional house plant.
After a while these will probably get a bit leggy and then I will take them out and plant them in the garden, but until then I am enjoying their special beauty.
How about you...have you been shopping in your garden lately?
Have a great day and thank you for finding the time to pay me a visit.
