Simple beauty

I fell in love with succulents about a year ago while reading A New Garden Design…. in the very popular blog Velvet & Linen by Brooke Giannetti.  Here’s the image I drooled over…….look at the colors, texture, and simplicity-absolutely stunning!


Inspired by images and my local nursery I thought I would dabble in my first succulent arrangement.

What do you think?

I planted this over a week ago and placed in a location where the Sun shines brightly on it.  The low maintenance is such a bonus!

How many of you have a succulent garden?

Enjoy and thanks for viewing!



Over the weekend I couldn’t help but fall in love with the array of orchids on display at my local emporium.  So many options I decided to treat myself to two.

These Phalaenopsis orchids are the commonly sold variety, it offers about 60 species.  Aren’t they gorgeous?

Such a great investment with low maintenance, here’s why:

-Water them every 7 to 10 days.

-Keep them away from direct sunlight.

-Can bloom for a couple of months!

Enjoy and thanks for viewing!
