Good Afternoon! It’s Porch Time!
Yesterday, Saturday, was the first farmers market of the season in Northampton, MA. I love the farmers market so I walked down to check out the goodies!! Knowing it’s still too early to plant I just wanted something to start bringing my Porch alive! I came across these potted Succulents…..Hens and Chickens, Sedum, a cactus that I was told is local to the Northern East United states. ( didn’t know we had cactus?) and another plant I don’t know the name of……
I had an old Bird Bath that 1, was too deep for birds to use and 2, I had left it full of water one cold day and it froze and the bottom fell out. It was too pretty to throw out so I glued the bottom back in. When I bought the succulents I decided to make that bird bath my planter!
I added some stones to the bottom for drainage.
And then I filled the Bird Bath with normal potting soil.
I then separated the plants from the pots and arranged them in the soil. I added some rocks and then sprinkled Bonsai soil on top and around the plants to give it texture.
I love the way it came out! Giving a new purpose to the Bird Bath! When I sit across from it this is my view! It should only get better as the plants grow and fill in!
Maybe you can make something similar??? Till next time!
