Yesterday, immediately after hitting the publish button on my post, I hopped in my car and went in search of some color for my outdoor shelves. They were driving me nuts so I stopped at a local hardware store and found these small, colorful pots. Aren’t they adorable? I then snuck over to Walmart and picked up some of my favorite succulents. This morning, before the rain started, I got my hands in the dirt (finally) and potted all eight succulents. I will probably have to bring them inside this weekend because the temperature is expected to drop below freezing, but I’m just happy that spring planting season has begun. Plus, I now have a delightful pop of color on my back porch. I will admit I’m a little nervous about having succulents because I usually end up killing them. I don’t know why. I blame it on their fickleness. (It has nothing to do with my inability to water plants properly.) Also, this area of the house doesn’t get loads of sunlight, so that’s another thing working against them. Ack, whatever. They are just plants, right? It’s worth a shot! I’ll keep you posted.

Wishing you all a weekend filled with the people and things you love.

    I love succulents but they can’t grow at my altitude. Don’t wanter them too often. The soil should never be damp. They sure turned out cute!

      GREAT advice! Thank you. I’m pretty sure that could be my issue.
