I went somewhere very pretty today! A friend and I went to visit a local nursery (the plant kind) and I saw some BEAUTIFUL plants! My friend is a bit garden savvy and had plans to grow her own vegetables and herbs. I'm not much of a green thumb (I'm not one at all actually) but I kind of fell in love with their succulents. My great-grandmother grew them and at one point gave some to my mom. They are resilient little plants and I was surprised at how pretty I now think they are.
This little guy came home with me! He's so puffy and cute.
The nursery also had lots of beautiful vegetables, flowers and herbs. And even a disappearing peacock! They had a curry plant that smelled so wonderful! And lavender plants that smelled 10 times better than any essential lavender oil I've smelled. If I knew how to care for those plants I would have bought a whole bunch of them, but I am afraid I would kill them. So I think I'm going to start researching herb gardens and succulents and start my own little garden. I'm thinking a little balcony garden with lavender, mint, lemon balm, curry (it smelled SO good!) and succulents growing would be so nice. I could make little ceramic pots for all of them to live in!
It's the perfect idea! New dream: herb and succulent garden on my balcony. It's going to happen. :)
