G is for Garden

After browsing through some photos on Instagram. I found some accounts that I really liked who focused on succulents. The photos were so pretty and they made it look so easy. I was tempted enough to try so I hitched myself off to a couple of nurseries and got me some succulents to try.

2 weeks later I tried propagating. MOH saw how much I loved pottering around outside he decided to get me a cute green house to potter in and store my stash of succulent leaves which are in the midst of propagating.

Here are a few post on my first succulent haul and the mayhem that ensued :

Succulent madness

Succulent destroyed by my dogs

The wind blew my succulents away!

I love it. I have tried gardening a few times but this is the first time I actually enjoy it. I have bought two bags of tulip bulbs to be planted now for a show in Spring. So, I am slowly venturing out of succulents and moving on to flowers and then hopefully do a small urban vegetables patch with a bee hive in the backyard.


Here is a new project we are currently on. Can't wait for it to finish so I can show you!

I am also planning a small aquaponics standing pond. Do you have any tips to share? If you do please leave a comment and share it😄

Till then
