Succulent Garden

I have been in love with succulent container gardens lately.

Not only do they look really great, but...apparently, they are really easy to take care of since they're native desert plants that require little water. 

So off I go to Home Depot yesterday to try my hand at creating a garden of my own.  I picked up a few succulents for about $2.50 a piece and a bag of cactus soil for $3.97.

I started out by using a vase I already had at home.  I filled the bottom with a couple of inches of gravel from our garden to allow for drainage.

Next I added a good amount of cactus potting soil.

Finally, I added my succulents, a few stones and some moss that I had lying around the house.  What?  You don't have bags of moss lying around your house?

All done!  I love, love, love this arrangement!  So pretty and so simple.

On a side note, if you've tried any of my recipes or projects, please take a picture and share with me!  I'd love to see them and feature them on my blog!

Have a great weekend!
