succulents in painted pots

When will it end? Definitely the question on everyone's mind this winter in Toronto. It's been a long, drawn out season and I think even the winter-loving among us (of which I count myself as one) are ready to move on to spring. succulents-2

I've been dying to add some new plants to my house but the cold weather has made me pause. I fear bringing anything living outside at the moment even if it is just for a short car ride.

Regardless I did pick up a few small succulents. I needed something to remind me that spring is around the corner. I've filled a sunny spot in my kitchen with them.

They seem to be doing remarkably well even with an outside door nearby. Fingers crossed they are a sign of more green things to come.

Oh and Happy St. Patrick's Day! (A good day for a green post.)
