Movin' On Up




My little pot of succulents got an upgrade today.
I divided them and repotted them each in their own planter.
They're waiting here on a shelf until it's warm enough to
go outside for the next few seasons.
I think I heard some happy sighs and the stretching of
legs....er, um...roots.  :)

  1. They look very happy in their pretty new homes.

    I'm still looking for some baby tears. No one around here has any. Sigh!

  5. I love pretty plants even though I often kill them!! I did just pot an aloe plant that a friend gave me. I hope it makes it.

    1. That's one in the succulent family, too! I don't have an aloe but it would be fun.
      I think they're pretty!

  6. Love your containers, they just are perfect for your succulents. I had such a lovely array of them in Sunland, but when we moved, knowing how small the balcony was, gave them all away. Now I wish I had some. Maybe some "little ones" like yours.

    1. I love them, too! Most of them were in the auction trash that I collected over the years. They have been on a shelf in my studio and I just decided to put some plants in them...very fun! I've never had succulents before this group I got at the grocery last year. They are a nice change from the normal houseplant!

    1. Cold and yucky outside.
      Will inside abide.
      I think they long for some hot sun
      to warm their little buns.
      lol....
