Good afternoon world! I'm working on a new Garden Update! Yes, I know - finally! I haven't done a post on my babies (plants) since October - gasp! Don't worry, you haven't missed much. In fact, I still haven't blogged about Cactus Corner and my various plant tragedies, despite mentioning them so many times. I know, I'm bad. You see, Cactus Corner went through some rough months after I first planted it, so I decided to give it time to fill in/recover before I shared it with you. It works out better this way because now I can show you how much it has changed with lots of progress photos since I first planted it last April (eek - almost a year!!). The changes are amazing! I'm telling you, once you see how amazing succulents and cacti look growing in your yard (in the ground and not just in planters), you'll be planning your very own in ground planter!
There was certainly a learning curve to this landscaping/gardening project, only time could teach me which succulents and cacti should go in the ground and which ones shouldn't, at least in my experience here in Miami. I'll tell you all about how Cactus Corner came about in the upcoming reveal post, in the meantime, here's a little tease to spike your interest! The image above is from Cactus Corner and features two (of many) ceramic owls that my mother bought me for Christmas, we just love how they look hanging out amongst the plants in our yard!! That reminds me, I really need to gather/take all of the images necessary for a post on our Christmas gifts, there were lots of good ones this year - both given and received! Back to the topic though - the vibrant purple beauty below is Echeveria Perle von Nunberg. Although I have several of these, I have never shared this one before because it wasn't in a planter - it's a HUGE one that I found in a landscape size container at Home Depot a few months ago. I didn't get around to planting it until about two months ago, wait until you see the rest of the planter, it's stunning! Okay, I gotta run... have a wonderful day!
