Last weekend I got busy with a different kind of planting. This kind of gardening didn't involve perennial beds. Or transplants. Or seeds. Or containers.
It did, though, require a lot of hands-on "digging-in." I planted . . . a living wreath!
I purchased the wreath form online, and I picked up a few small succulents at the nursery. Eventually, I plan to hang this wreath on the gate to my backyard. For now, though, I'm keeping it flat -- so the roots can take hold a bit before they need to defy gravity.
This was a fun project. It required a little imagination and creativity. . . and a whole lot of digging and dividing! Although the "directions" suggested using a wooden tool to make the planting holes in the sphagnum moss, I found that it was a lot easier to just dig in with my hands.
My fingernails will never be the same!
