Getting everything put away after the holidays seems to have taken more time this year. It didn't help that my basement was flooded by our recent heavy rain storms not just once but twice. I appreciate the rain, it is so badly needed, and I expected to have some problems with my roof, but not the basement. Life is never what you think it is going to be. For now the problem is fixed and I hope it doesn't happen again.
After all of the decorations were finally put away safely, the house looked pretty bare, especially the kitchen. I decided that January would be the month of succulents and silver...more on silver in another post. I hadn't used the box I made for a while and what better to do then plant it with succulents, perfect for the sunny, west facing, shelve under my kitchen window.
It fits the space but still leaves room at each end for Miss Twiggley to sit and enjoy looking at the birds in the orange tree outside. This is one of the spots I plan on putting one of the new bird feeders I got for Christmas. I think it will provide her with lots of entertainment.
I really like succulents as house plants, like orchids they last for what seems like forever and then you can plant them outside. I always use cuttings from the garden and this is just another way to add more. And...they do look quite pretty!
I hope your new year is off to a good start.
Thank you for visiting.
