Life and My Growing Succulent Garden

It’s been way to long. About 7 months to be exact, since I last blogged.  I used to keep up with my  blogging schedule for a time period. I mean I would be on the ball by posting 2-3 times a week, a planned and well thought out post about my bible studies, crafts, plants or favorite book or movie.  I’d come home from work, cook dinner, serve dinner, clean the kitchen, shower, then blog. But sometimes you have to put things on the back burner and focus more on what’s important. Family.

When you have a husband, two kids, four dogs, and a full-time job, Life can get crazy busy.    Sometimes I feel like it’s a rat race of epic proportions. Constant rushing and trying to meet deadlines and coordinating school pick up and drop off schedules between my husband and I. But today I was blessed to have found a small pocket of time where I could share a few of my favorite things.

My succulent garden is growing. I do a lot of container gardening in my backyard and in my front yard I do both container and in ground gardening.  There is just something so peaceful and relaxing about playing with dirt and planting up your favorite succulents and/or creating a beautiful arrangement to adorn your patio or front porch. I’ve found great joy in propagating leaves as well and just love watching how succulent leaves push out a brand new baby succulent. I’ll be sure to share more on that in future posts. For now take a look at these beauties. Don’t you just love the colors and the delicate details of every leaf?

Stay tuned for more on my succulent gardening journey and our new addition to our family of fur babies.
