Putting a Creative Touch on your Potted Plants

Potted Plants #1_LI

 

Hello readers, happy Friday! I hope you are well, and thank you for visiting my page today. Really, thank you so much!

I have had a tough couple of weeks! Last week, I had to finish more homework than normal because I was going to be out of town that weekend. This last week, I have been battling a cold; a nasty, unforgiving cold. So needless to say, I haven’t had many opportunities to talk to you all on Little Things.

So with all of that to say, thank you for your patience. I’m still new to blogging, and I’m trying my best to stick to a writing schedule, but sometimes I mess up. I appreciate everyone’s grace and support!

To move on, I wanted to share my new potted plants with you all!

I bought these plants earlier in the day, the left one is called a Water Miser and the plant to the right is called a Shake Cotyledon. I was very selective going into Fred Meyer, I wanted something fairly easy to keep alive. I don’t have the best track record with plants, but growing and caring for them is a hobby I’d like to develop. So I thought these would be an easy starting point. I’m excited to see how beautifully they grow!

I had a last minute thought as I transferred them to their containers: Why not label them by their scientific name?

I had exactly two small chalk labels left in my craft drawer and decided to take advantage of them. So I labeled each plant by their scientific name, as you can see above. It’s my goal to have several plants in this apartment over the summer, and I wanted to come up with a fun way to make them stand out!

Also, I just discovered that at my apartment complex, there is a community garden area and I was thinking of trying out my green thumb there as well. I might make a feature out of it, since I’m new to this and it would be fun to note my progress maybe once a week. I will look into it soon, so stay tuned!

Hopefully this is of inspiration to you all. I bought both the pots and the plants for $13, so it wasn’t too expensive.

So if you are looking for a fun way to decorate your plants, give this a shot!

Let me know in the comments what you think, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks everyone!
