  1. What an awesome idea to use the gravy bowl for the suculents!! Very pretty!

  2. Very nice to put those lovely's in the gravy, how do you keep them alive? I have bought many, put them in so many containers and always kill them... not enough water or too much... Very nice post!

  3. Candy, I hope this posts, because I have tried and tried to post to you and I am a follower of your blog =(

    I wanted to say I love your silver and your plants look so healthy.

  4. Love the plants, the silver and pictures. Please give us your secret in growing the succulents. I kill them.

  5. Hello Candy,
    nice idea to plant the succulents into a gravy boat, looks gorgeous.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  6. Oh...that's pretty...I love the succulents mixed with the old silver....divine.

  7. Candy, your presentation is fabulous. Never thought of succulents presented like this but it is gorgeous.

    Would you be so kind to (& tell your friends) comment on my BLOG ONLY (emails don't count), for the Miracle Makeover fund drive. Charlie, 8 yr. old, & his story are fabulous. Every comment brings us a $1 for the next person that will be sponsored.

    Have a beautiful weekend.

  8. Your succulents are so pretty. Please give us your tips on how to keep them growing long term. I carefully picked out several succulents, a nice pot, and succulent/cactus potting soil. Made a really nice pot full of plants. They looked really good for a while, then started getting soft, then mushy, then kapoot, they died one by one. :(

  9. Until a couple of years ago, I didn't have much interest in succulents, then I was given one by my mother and it bloomed! I did not realize they had such lovely flowers. I have several different kinds now, and I really like them...even when they aren't in bloom.

    Your pictures are wonderful. Pairing the silver with the succulents is beautiful! Very creative and they go well together.


  10. Very pretty post. I love the combo of succulents and silver. Very, very pretty!

  11. Candy- I Love this vignette!
    I miss you and the Garden Link parties!
    I hope you will be able to post more soon!
    I know you life has been turned upside down and I hope will be able to return to some of your fun pastimes- like your wonderful tablescapes!
    Hugs, Liz

  12. Thinking of you. Hope all is well. Monica

  13. Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers as we try to rebuild the way we live in a healthier way.

    Regarding succulents - they can live outside here, so that makes it a lot easier, as they can be rotated from inside to outside.

    As far as growing them inside -

    As much light as you can give them.
    Very little water
    A very loose soil mix, with excellent drainage
    A very weak solution of fish emulsion fertilizer every couple of months. (A commercial "cactus" mix works fine)



Thank you for your lovely comments.
