Gardening, kind of.....

I am a horrible gardener, it doesn't matter what it is that I'm trying to grow it always seems to die!!!  The lavender plant my good friend gave me that she said was unkillable, it lasted a month. Basil, rosemary, snap dragons all sent to the trash within months of being in my care!  I don't know what it is - sometimes I overwater, sometimes underwater - I just have the WORST luck with plants.

I had all but given up on plants,  until I bought the beautiful Hibiscus below, it has lasted me for two years.  There have been a couple of times when I thought that her time was up, but with a couple of days of tender care she bounced right back!   I get so happy when I walk up and see her wonderful blossoms!

The second plant was left over from work, we made a beautiful centerpiece with sand, river rocks and succulents.  I figured that since a succulent was similar to a cactus that it would be really hard to kill it, and I was right!  These beautiful plants have been thriving for six months and I love the shades of blue green!  I am so proud of my two plants that I just had to share! :)

  1. Beautiful plants! I love succulents and your echeveria is gorgeous. I think it is called Echeveria glauca.
