I honestly don't even love loose leaf tea, I find that it doesn't steep as well as bags...is that weird? But I bought this tea, and drank it, because I wanted the tin...is that weird?
A friend gave me a lovely planter for mother's day. It's been outside all summer and it was time to save this little succulent before frost.
I don't know much about succulents, just some vague notion that they prefer drier, sandy soil. I potted this with all things I had on hand, in a 5-minute do-something-creative-before-the-baby-wakes-up mad dash. First went in collected pebbles from the garden, then sand from Sophie's sandbox (yes, really), then some peat moss and potting soil, both found in the garage, some of which was actually left three years ago by the previous owners. Really, as still life of found objects.
I'm excited to inject more green into the house as it turns grey outside (ohhai Michigan lake effect) and I have to come up with ways to do this that won't end in the cat eating the plants and then puking them...not the sort of green I'm going for. So succulents and hanging plants are probably my options. Which is good because they are hard to kill.
