Today I decided to pot up loads of baby succulents, because an experiment last Summer when I potted 3 small succulents in a large pot led to 3 huge ones, so I want to see what happens to these…plus the fact I’m sort of obsessed/addicted to propagating succulents as it basically involves sticking a ‘leaf’ on a window sill and waiting for roots to appear!

It’s looking really washed out at the moment so I was determined to find the colour…

The cranberries are left from Christmas, as are the rose hips and orange ilex, the blue hydrangea petals and orange physalis are saved from the Autumn, and the blueberries are from my lunch…but the other bits are from my garden even the calendula and field scabious…

its definitely important to me to search for Spring in the middle of January…Photo 13-01-2016, 16 41 35
