Easter Succulent Garden

Take a moment to gather your thoughts, count your blessings and start the holiday weekend with a grateful heart.
 
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~Romans 5:8
 
Blessings to all this Good Friday.

Remember that one time last year when I made a wire cloche for a succulent terrarium/garden? It’s a miracle! I haven’t managed to kill the plants! I love that succulents are so hardy, nearly fool-proof. Well, for Easter, I’ve done a little re-arranging in my little succulent garden.

It’s still alive and thriving but it was looking a bit neglected and sad (okay, so some of the plants didn’t make it) but I took a few minutes to freshen it up for spring, trying to make up for my non-green thumb. I saw something similar somewhere one time but for the life of me, can’t find it now to properly credit that glimpse of inspiration. Here’s what I did:

  • I added water so the soil was wet. I broke up the compacted soil with a fork then added half of an empty toilet paper roll. I covered it with soil and pebbles then added a rock to the side…just like Jesus’ tomb. 
  • Using twigs from my yard and scrap floral wire, I created 3 little stick crosses and tucked them near the back.

When Easter decorating becomes bunnies, eggs, chicks and candy overload (which I do love too, don’t get me wrong!). However, it’s important to have a sweet reminder of the true reason for celebrating Easter. He is risen!
