March in with Green




I am welcoming March with a bit of greenery added to our home.
We are trying our hand and growing(and keeping alive)some succulents.
They really are adding some lush color and a welcoming vibe to our foyer.
It is great to see a bit of life when walking into the home.I went to West Elm to browse the succulents I had heard about and quickly left, the prices were ridiculous. For the price of what 3 plants, just the plants mind you no containers, was what I spent on 8 plants and planters at another location.
We also picked up some aloe to have growing around for our easy treatment of cuts and burns.
I have rearranged and brought our dogs that were on the porch inside, I rather like them in the house. I am always afraid of the winds blowing them over outside.

The color is coming along nicely and really bringing in that fresh spring feeling :)

Looks great, Amy! I especially like the aloe in that neat shell bowl. Your dogs look perfect standing at attention here. :)
