I doubt if anybody thinks of a succulent as a "fall-ish" sort of plant but if you look at the colors they are perfect for fall center pieces
I feel really lucky to have a wonderful local grower just down the road from me. He is about 90 years old but still going strong and these succulents and cacti are his passion.
The variety and contrast are what is so appealing about these plants...not to mention the fact that they are really maintenance free for the most part.
They sort of thrive on being neglected.
Every time I go an antique mall or even a store like Pier One, I look for interesting containers for succulents. You can really put them in just about anything because they require such a small amount of water.
Putting rocks and wood and other found things from the yard is fun and creative too.
These are some little baskets I have on the orchard table.
I'm hoping to serve thanksgiving dinner here...weather permitting!
Here are a few of those funny little vintage mexican pottery bowls I love so much.
This back porch has really turned into one of our favorite spots to sit...it gets the best afternoon sunshine.
I found this weathered old sign just last week and hung it above an old vintage pack basket.
Just sticking an oak branch in this little basket makes it look more like the fall.
I think we are ready for some relatives to arrive and to enjoy a few days of "giving thanks"...
And maybe a game or two of croquet!
Hope you are enjoying the fall too!
