When I was a little girl my mom used to take me to Knollwood Garden Center and let me pick out a succulent. I remember standing in the hot greenhouse with sweat trickling down my back, struggling to choose because I liked them all. I don't know if that's when my fascination with succulents began, but I do so love their stout little bodies. My favorite has always been the soft, chubby ones like the one in focus above.
In honor of that wonderful memory I decided to make a succulent arrangement for my Mom. I bought this snail pot for her a few Mother's Days back at Home Emporium. This past summer she gave me a plant that was in it so I still had it. I put calla lilies in it the first time around, so I wanted to do something different and the succulents were the perfect choice. And just standing in Lowe's today trying to figure out which cacti to buy put a smile on this girl's face. Thanks Mom!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
