Happy Succulents

Since I have a tendency to have plants that don't love me...

I really do love them.  

I just like a plant that isn't too needy right now.

That is where succulents come into play.

Water them maybe once a week.

If you forget....

They still forgive you and keep on living.  

So kind of them.

Because I do truly feel bad when, as the saying goes,

"Another one bites the dust..."

But we won't dwell on that.

For now I have happy plants in my house.

I found that little silver bowl at an antique store in Fredericksburg.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it when I saw it calling my name... 

and it was the right price at only $4.50.


Happy Monday everyone!

Bonnie, I really look forward to checking each day to see if you have posted anything new. I love your photos; they are so homey and fresh and interesting. It would be fun to go antiquing with you, in search of little treasures. One of my favorite pasttimes. Sweet Monday hugs to you ...

My kind of plant - and I love these photos, too. I love getting little glimpses into your life and home. They seem like a lovely place. (Yes, both your life and home.) :)
