Succulent Birdbath

Sometimes things just fall into place, you know? A sweet friend dropped off two egg cartons full of divisions from her Hens & Chicks last week. I had been trying to decide where to plant them and hadn’t settled on an idea yet. Then, yesterday I saw my neighbors carrying their old birdbath to the

So, what do you do when you have an old stump to camouflage, a wheelbarrow with holes and dribs and drabs of different outdoor succulents? Why, make a planter of course! This old wheelbarrow had seen better days and had quite a few rusted out holes in the bottom of it. Placing a few pieces
