Yesterday was like Christmas for me and here is the story… A few weeks ago I ordered 100 succulent cuttings to split with my sister-in-law. When I ordered I wanted to make sure I was doing everything right so I called the shop that sells them, Daniel’s Specialty Nursery at gosucculent.com. I talked to Daniel who was extremely nice and helpful. Turns out, they sell succulents to Disneyland. How cool is that! I asked a few questions and he answered all of them and then I went online to place my order. I mailed my check and the waiting began… On Monday I received an email saying my succulent cuttings had shipped and would arrive Wednesday. Let me tell you, it was a rough two days. I’m not a very patient person…
On Wednesday morning I went to work. My mom sent me a text when the box arrived and the anticipation continued. She had been feeling sick so I offered to make dinner for all of us. While I don’t regret that at all, it was a little difficult to look at the box and make dinner knowing what was inside. As soon as Kevin got home I quickly explained how to finish making dinner and then opened the box and started gently laying out and admiring all the beautiful cuttings. The variety I received is amazing! There are so many colors, shapes and textures. I will admit I had a hard time touching the fuzzy ones though. They remind me of tarantulas… But, they still look pretty cool!
As it turns out I got a bonus 6 cuttings! Even more exciting! Now I’m trying to figure out just what I am going to do with all of them. I’m thinking about doing a living wall with the frame I have in the window well. It’s amazing that 100 (well, 50 for me) cuttings doesn’t seem like a lot when you are putting them in something like a wall or a wreath. No wonder those are all so expensive to buy. Well, I’ll definitely keep you posted on what I do with these lovely succulent cuttings. Be assured, it will be something amazing :)
These are the fuzzy ones I didn’t want to touch :)
