Designing with succulents

It is obvious by now to my readers that my new obsession is succulents. Wherever I get a chance in the garden, I am planting, arranging and creating focal points using succulents. This is my new arrangement in the garden right next to blueberry patch. I borrowed an urn from another part of the garden and used it as a base for the arrangement. An arrangement like this doesn't need to be watered often. In fact, the more you neglect it, the better it looks!

  1. Very pretty! I love the trailing ones over the side of the urn, they're really interesting and different.

  2. Lovely! I experimented with some succulents last summer, but wasn't successful. I want to try again. Love this look!
