Planting Succulents...

Today I finally decided to plant the succulents that I have had hardening on my front porch for a few weeks now.  They only needed to be out there for a few days to a week, but time just seemed to slip by and I kept putting them off.  

I made 7 pots worth....
 This was a fairly inexpensive project... Special potting soil $4.99 a bag(only used one), clay pots from yard sales $4 total(still have 3 more that I didn't use), 4 bags of rocks from the dollar store $4, and plants Free because I took them from my plants already established in my garden. Grand total $12.99 for 7 pots of plants, not too bad.

I put rocks in the bottom of the pot before I added the soil because succulents like well drained soil. I then added some to the top because I thought it finished off the look nicely.
 I think a few of these may go as "Welcome Back" gifts to the kids' teachers in two weeks because I am running out of room for plants in the house!
Have a fabulous weekend,
