A full view of the little door-side garden. This is the extent of my front porch. The purple petunias are the newest edition to the family, I named them Petunia, after Harry Potter's aunt.
This is my dinosaur planter. His plant was one of the ones that passed, so I transplanted one of the offspring of my big cactus, Smaug, into him.
Smaug himself. He's the plant I've managed to keep alive longest, not surprising 'cause he's a cactus. I did used to have another cactus though and unfortunately he didn't make it through some of the kids in the back of my apartment pulling him out by his roots. I didn't notice for a while (bad plant mommy!) but I rarely went out back unless it was to water him and since he was a cactus it wasn't that often. I still couldn't believe that kids would be stupid enough to pick up a cactus though...I know it was kids and not an animal cause they left a little toy car behind.
My succulent is unhappy I think. He seems to be stretching a lot and I'm not sure if that's healthy for it. There are little baby rosettes on the stem though, I need to try to plant those in new pots.
Then there's the rest of the succulents that I planted in my teacup planter. As hard as I worked on that DIY, its still having some issues and I actually really need to write up a post about it.
I love the radial symmetry of Smaug. He seems a lot happier since I plucked off the 10-15 mini cacti that were weighing him down.
That's my little garden! I hope you enjoyed getting to see all my plant-babies. I hope to finally have my DIY for the week up tomorrow and then maybe a style post on Saturday. I've already risen to be one of the best people at my new job and they're consistently giving me more hours than I want. It's making finding time to blog hard. Oh well...I guess I can't be too upset about success. I feel very torn between making money right now and having the free time to earn the possibility to earn more money in the future.
Til Next Time!
