Succulent Love

I spruced up our front patio a few weeks ago by planting these cacti and succulents in cinder blocks. It brings much needed color to our HOA color palette. Can you believe those shoots coming off of that one in the middle!?  I have fallen madly in love with flowers now that we have our own space. And it is with falling in love with flowers that I have become "Ali the Snail Killer". I tried to be humane and just toss them into the grass, but now that they've started eating these lovely plants of mine, I am showing no mercy! It's a salt bath for you dirty snails!

Do you have a snail problem? Have you tried anything other than salt and cornmeal?



  1. What a fun idea! I need to find some cinder blocks now.

  2. Oh I love this! Such a great idea. Succulents are just so cute and wonderful!
