it all began with a succulent

It all started with needing a place to put a succulent. Then 3 succulents, then 25 smaller succulents, then soil to go in the pot, next thing you know we are at the nursery buying a century plant and doing massive amounts of yard work. Still no fence though... in case you were wondering. But our front and back doors look a little jazzier with their new green friends.

Yesterday we watched the (very lame) game from our patio and jammed on white chili while the few trick or treaters came by. I will post the recipe later this week when I make an encore batch (it was that good!)

  4. I think this is a great addiction - it's not that expensive, as you can usually find succulents of all descriptions in friends gardens and beg a piece - and they look so fantastic in salvaged containers. There is no downside (except for running out of space for them all...)
