Before I show you the my lovely freshly planted pots I have to get something off my chest.
I hate the word succulents.
It makes me cringe to say it, it makes me cringe to even write it.
I can't tell you why, but I just do.
Some words are just like that for me.
Am I the only one? Please tell me I'm not alone.
Now that we got that out of the way, let me show you what I've got on my front porch.
For about 2 years I have had these pots right next to my front door.
I love them.
Some of you might even have them since they were at Ikea, which means they were a steal.
I've had the toughest time keeping anything alive in them.
I tried picking out plants and flowers on my own, they died.
I tried asking the plant and flower experts, they died.
I am usually pretty good at keeping things alive so this has been frustrating for me.
Plus, I was not happy with the waste of money. It gets expensive after a while.
I finally decided to go for succulents.
I know I'm a little late to jump on the succulent bandwagon, but to be honest, I was kind of over seeing them everywhere.
But I figured this was my last shot to keep something alive.
So I took the boys with me to Home Depot (we have a gift card, yay!) and I let Ethan do most of the choosing.
I didn't realize there were so many different succulents out there in so many different shades of green.
While the boys were napping I headed outside and planted away.
I really enjoyed getting creative with the sizes, colors and variations.
I am really happy with how turned out and they make me smile when I walk through the front door.
The succulents have won me over.
Now if I could just come up with a better name?
