Somebody got some succulents. 

My friend Stephanie directed me towards some succulent groups on Facebook a couple years ago and I became friends with one of the ladies who sells them by the flat rate box. I got a large flat rate stuffed to the brim for $58. I even used every little leaf that fell off in transit to try and propagate. If it works I will be swimming in succulents. Not that I mind. 

I planted them all over the porch and in every pot and crevice I could find. I hope some of them live. :-)

Between the plants and the birds, my sister and I were joking that I should do some Herbs 'n Birbs posts. I am tracking every bird I see to post at the end of the year. The birds did come back after I moved the feeder and now they visit the new bird bath too. 

Are you tinkering around outside yet? Or is it still too Winter?


  1. Still too wintery here but I'm getting an itch to get going on outdoor things. All the stores are starting to get there planting stuff out, seeds and whatnot. We're not doing a garden this year but I want to try and do a tomato plant and a pepper plant in containers on the porch. I want to try just one or two simple flowers too. I managed to grow some last year but started too late in the season. I'm gonna be on top of things this year! (Hopefully!)

    Your succulents look so fun. And I think Herbs 'n Birbs posts would be fun. :)


  2. Oh, succulents, so cute! I hope they take like mad. I used to follow an account on IG that made these gorgeous rainbow succulent wreaths. My gosh, they were beautiful. Best of luck and enjoy. :)
