Went out this morning to rearrange the screenroom to make more room for people when barbequing. My succulents used to run lengthwise around the edge of the room, but with the kids here, I felt I needed to open up more space and consolidate the plants somewhat. The sun seems to fall in on them quite nicely even this way for a few hours in the morning...that is about all they can handle anyway! There are a few (like the two Claude sent me) that are gonna get moved to the tires in full sun...as soon as I can. I promise, Claude!!! Really...I do.
Ms. Beary is a wooden thing I bought about 5 years ago for outside. I went through a BEAR phase. I still love them. The kids love to color her with chalk, so brought her in so they can be in there playing where I can keep an eye on them. At least for now. Pretty soon, it will be too hot for any living creature to be in there. At least the succulents are happy in there! Thank God. What else would I do with all these temperamental bitches! :0
The bottom shelves are just where I place dead ones or empty pots to re-use. It looks kinda messy and I am thinking of making a very lightweight sheet-weight sort of straight cover to wrap around in festive colors and attaching with velcro to cover. I will be having this project on my mind and see what I can come up with!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone!
