Happy Cactus Monday on Tuesday!
Hey fellow gardners! Sorry I was missing last week but we had a couple of birthdays to celebrate and it kind of took up a bit of my time. My hubby turned 55 on Friday and I well.....younger on Sunday. LOL I thought I would show you a few of my container planters today. The one above is actually the cutest teacup planter but it is hard to see. Got it at Walmart for $10.00. I planted a donkey tail sedum, a couple different kind of crassula (the one in front is blooming). And in the middle is a echeveria perle von nurnberg. Can't believe how much it has grown since I planted it at the beginning of spring.
I found this beautiful planter already done for me at Target. The plants were a lot smaller when I got it. I am so happy it is doing so well. I can't even count how many different succulents are in it. Below is the other side.
In this shot you can see the first planter underneath and some others. I love my gazebo or else everything would burn up in my backyard. It gets really hot in this part of the yard.
At the beginning of spring I bought eight of these round hanging planters. Really easy all you have to do is add dirt plants and then I covered with tiny decorative rocks. I bought eight of these along with hanging hooks so I could plant 2 on each side of my gazebo. I only got 1 planted and then I hurt my back. Oh well, something fun to look forward to!
Have a great week everyone!
