Updated Terra Cotta Pot

Hello friends!  I have a new obsession in my gardening life, succulents!  I love their diversity and ease of care.  I use them outside in my garden, in pots on my patio and indoors also.  Today I’m sharing with you how I updated an old terra cotta pot with some chalky finish paint, a stencil and some soft pastel succulents.

Fun Garden Art

Did you know that April is National Gardening Month?  Well it is and after a long Winter, it feels great to get outside and get my hands dirty.  Although the Winters here in Arizona aren’t very harsh at all, people love to garden here and for me it’s not just flowers  that I like to add to my garden.  Adding some whimsical garden art is a wonderful way to bring even more color and fun to your garden.
