On Sunday, I saw this post from one of my favorite bloggers, Elsie Larson, and was instantly inspired.
I’ve been wanting to buy some succulents for weeks now, but when Kyle and I were leaving brunch and I saw the photo, I said “Can we please go on a succulent search?!” He agreed, and it turned into an all-day excursion involving purchasing deck furniture that wouldn’t fit into our car, but it was a lot of fun! Kyle also requested some cacti plants, so I was excited to plant some of those for him, too. I even made a mini planter for his desk at work!
After several different stops, I finally had everything I needed. Here’s what I used.
Succulents and cacti plants
I mixed the perlite with the soil, about half and half, and then got to arranging the plants! I tried to place the plants in a way that the different colors were distributed nicely. Pack the soil and add decorative rocks on top if you want! I couldn’t find the color I want, yet, so my garden is without them for now.
I love how these plants are brightening up our new little deck area. Also, they’re supposed to be pretty tough plants, so maybe I won’t kill them.
What are your favorite types of plants and flowers? Do you have a succulent garden?
