Seahorses & Succulents


I have a very talented friend who makes the most amazing succulent arrangements.




I wanted to give you a sneak peek at one she just finished.  I picked up this vintage ceramic seahorse at a consignment shop a few weeks ago and dropped it off at her house with several other containers.  I'll show you the others tomorrow and take you on a tour of her beautiful yard.

I can't get over that adorable seahorse - swoon worth for certain. I have been unable to keep succulents alive. My last two are holding on by a thread and yet I love them. You must tell me the secret.

Wow. Anything could look good in this whimsical planter, but I love the succulents. I have this thing for - is it Chicks and Hens? I never get it right, but I love them whatever they are. Will stop by to see the other delights.

Our succulents are having a hard time in the excessive oppressive heat it's too humid maybe. I put some in the garden window each winter so easy to take care of. I so like that little seahorse and thought it was available from your friend. sigh sigh
