How I Spent My Saturday

I found myself with a free day today, and after the traditional Saturday chores and housecleaning, I decided to tackle some replanting of some houseplants I have.

Back in the Spring/Summer, I put together a small succulent garden for in my kitchen. The plants were all small-ish at the time, but one of them has turned into this monstrosity and needed it’s own home. So my daughter and I hit up some of the local garden stores and I found a couple more small plants, a larger pot for my giant plant, and then headed home for some re-potting.

The big plant on the left is the one that outgrew his home. The center planter is where all of these plants were trying to live together before today. I took out the big cabbage-type succulent on the left and put him in his own, much larger home. I also took out the Kalanchoe on the right and put her in her own little planter. In the center planter, the little guy on the left is new and joined my other smaller plants.

These two got new homes of their own!

Now I have this little fella who needs a roommate. I have a planter ready for him, and need to find him a friend and then all my little plants will be happy in their new homes.

I absolutely adore succulents. They are super cool, some of them are downright weird, and I really like that about them.

Once I find a friend for my solo plant, my next project will be a “fairy garden” type thing. Alexa and I had fun today, out in the frigid February temperatures, wandering through greenhouses and looking at amazing plants. There are some really fun fairy garden themes and accessories, and I’m looking forward to planning that out.

Here’s to a Saturday spent with one of my best friends, looking at amazing plants, finding some cute greenhouse cats, and having a generally good day.
