What that in mind, it's natural that new indoor plants come into our home pretty much every year at this time. This year was all about the succulents. They were purchased in haste at a hardware store, while we were waiting for paint for the basement to be mixed. I had a sudden longing for warmer weather and growing things. After a quick stop off at the thrift store to find brightly colored mugs to use as pots, we were in business.
These happy plants now adorn my bathroom windowsill (I'd love to keep them in a more prominent place, but have you met my two year old?) and make me smile every time I see them, despite the snow falling outside.
