Sometimes I find dishes that are funky enough to truly match the array of interesting plants I use. And there's a lot more to this process than just mindlessly tossing a plant into a new container. I've got a little formula I use, a multi-layer process that will allow these plants to live happily in their dishes for many years.
Unfortunately, I do not sell them in my online shop because I worry that these lovely plants would get hurt during the shipping process (perhaps I'm a little too protective of them considering there are many people who sell succulents online). The only way to purchase one of these funky little creations from me is to come and see me in person at one of my local shows. As a matter of fact, you can find me at Ida Red this Saturday in Tulsa! You may remember the holiday show I posted about in December at this same venue. It was a blast! So we've decided to have another go- this time with a spring theme.
We'll have all kinds of spring goodies for you to browse, and if you have yet to acquire that perfect Mother's Day present we'll have you covered! I think these little dish gardens would be a perfect gift for your sweet mama. It's a unique twist on the tradition of giving plants and flowers for Mother's Day. If your mom loves gardening, she'll appreciate the unusual shapes and colors of the succulents. If she hates gardening, these are very easy to care for and will allow her to add a touch of nature to her home or office without much effort (a little mist once a week and a sunny window is all they require). I can personally attest to how much they cheer up a room. My husband doesn't like it when I sell them because they are so much fun to have around. ;-)
This show will be consuming most of my Saturday, but I intend to head down to to my hometown to visit with family on Sunday. I'm so excited about spending time with the amazing ladies in my family, showing them how loved and appreciated they are. How will you spend your weekend?
