Cactus and Succulent Obsession

To an outsider, my recent love and procurement of many cactus and succulent plants might seem to border on obsession. However, I prefer to think of it as simply making up for lost time. I picked up a couple more succulents and cacti today and planted them in some pots and a small tin trough I picked up at the thrifty recently. They are scattered all across the steps leading up to my front door; making a welcoming entrance for any guest! :)

Today, I imagined what my dining room table would look like this winter; swarming with the succulent plants taking refuge from the cold. It made me smile. It made me smile real big!


  1. i have started planting some as well! are you using regular soil and topping it off with rocks?

  2. I mix sand with my soil for the succulents and put a little bit of rocks/pebbles at both the bottom and top of pot. I have an earlier post with tips for caring for cacti and succulents...
