A sucker for succulents.

A few weeks ago, I saw a set of planters I couldn't resist on a deal a day website, Decor Steals. The set had two sizes. The smaller planter holds a faux olive tree in my living room, but the larger one has remained empty waiting for just the right contents.

The weather in Wisconsin can be unpredictable, so even though "spring has sprung", it's usually best to wait until after Mother's Day to put annuals outside without the risk of frost.

I was in Home Depot yesterday with a friend who showed me the assortment of succulents they had for sale. Well, let's just say I'm a sucker for succulents! I picked up four plants in different shapes and sizes.

Once I got home, it struck me those succulents might look nice in the larger planter--I was right.

Of course browsing the garden center yesterday now has me itchin' to buy and pot up more plants for my yard.
