New hobby

I’m picking up a new hobby. I don’t think it’ll cut into my knitting time too much. And they’re so cute

Meet my new little succulents in their teacup garden. I picked up Willow first:

(Windsor decided to name her after the baby, not me.)

I used to have quite a few houseplants. But I suffered a nasty fight with post-partum depression this summer and they were all casualties. Except for this guy:

We named him Spike and repotted him after I picked up Willow. (the plant, not the baby. Do not attempt to repot cacti while holding babies.) Poor Spike came to me years ago after surviving a hail storm on someone’s deck. So he looks a little worse for the wear. But hopefully he likes his new friends! The tiny cactus in the first photo is an offshoot from Spike. I’m waiting to see if it survives separation before giving it a cup of its own (and a name, apparently.)

Gwen joined the party this weekend. They sell these adorable things for $3 at my local garden center – teacup not included. But that’s ok, because I’ve got space for at least 5 more:

  1. Omg that’s too cute! I have a few succulents too and love them, but the teacups make it 1000 times better!

    • I know, right?! And I forgot to mention that the teacups are a collection my great-grandmother gave me when I was in high school. They’ve been in storage for 20 years so getting them out of the box and using them is an added bonus!

  2. Love them! I just got my first succulent (other than Aloe Vera) this week!
