Britto time!

I think this will be my next project, it's another Britto of course!  I really like the motif and it's going to go above the dry bar in our dining room.  Stand by!

DIY succulent wreath!

First of all you will need a wreath frame, you can get all kinds of sizes at your local craft store!  After that you will need a big bag of moss that you will have to soak in water, and either floral wire or a fishing line (I used floral wire). 

Gather your succulent clippings - note to self, next time, do this project OUTSIDE! 

All the supplies.  Tip:  DO IT OUTSIDE!!!

Here is the finished project, it looks a bit bare now but as the plants grow the wreath will look fuller.  You can also keep adding plants as you buy them. 

Here it is hanging on our patio.  I will be able to control how much water these plants will be getting as no rain - not even a Florisa Monsoon will reach it on that wall. 

Gotta be careful, there are some prickly ones in there too! 
The wreath is very easy to take care of, just spray a gentle mist of water on it every once in a while and it will thrive!  I hope as my other succulents keep growing that I will be able to carry these in my store as well.

Air plants!

I realize this is turning into a gardening blog but I'm having so much fun with all the Florida plants!  Seems like it's easier for me to keep the plants alive down here :).  Air plants are fun because they don't need any soil or water to live, you just stick them somewhere are they continue to thrive! 
Pretty airplant found in Ft. Lauderdale. 

We found this plant on the beach, probably a left over from a wedding. 

Another airplant!

Hm, it's a palmtree growing on a palmtree :)

Obscene cacti?

Someone mentioned that some cacti look kind of obscene, really? 

I guess I just don't think like that :-)

Some recent additions!

Bright red Elmo pot for Alex :)

The pot below is a "lemonade yellow" pot with hot pink hibiscus flowers on it!  Trying to add a splash of color to my own back yard!!
