Once I owned my own home and vowed to fill it with beautiful greenery to keep it cheery all year long, I learned pretty quickly that I am extremely hopeless when it comes to the scale of Green Thumb-ery (a really technical measure of a gardener’s success level that I just made up). Orchids wither at my touch, I even once let a cactus get too dry! I AM WORSE THAN A DESERT, YOU GUYS! This is perhaps why I tend to lean toward the beauty of fresh-cut flowers. We have an agreement, those flowers and I, that it’s not going to be a long-term thing so we’re just going to have fun while it lasts. No guilt. But courting weekly flower arrangements can tend to get expensive, so I’ve settled down with a new love: succulents. Combining the beautiful shapes and colours of exotic locales, with the heartiness of a heroic viking, these adorable and versatile plants are the perfect match for me. Figures we met online…
I’m obsessed with them too! Have something in the works right now with them. Love all these photos. Thanks for the inspiration!
why don’t you use your cell phone once every forthnight to give you a beep so you can give your succulents a bit of water ?
