Green in a Glass

succulents 1

A friend gave me a little piece of a plant I had admired in her garden a few weeks ago [I have a thing for succulents, you see] and so I popped this little green flower-shaped cutting into a pretty vintage glass. It quickly sprouted delicate roots and now makes a lovely feature on a shelf.

I was supposed to plant it so I could have my very own variety of this succulent in my garden, but I’ve grown rather fond of this little green gem in a glass..

Maybe in the Spring I’ll introduce it to the great outdoors.

Still Life: Naturals

I gathered a few items together and did a little styling – my old tape measure which I used when learning to sew; some beautifully delicate leaf skeletons which I’ve had for years; and a bold Versace espresso cup and saucer, part of a set given to us by dear friends for an anniversary. I’m still practising the photographic skills which Leslie of A Creative Mint taught in the Blogging Your Way course in March. Those aperture settings sometimes get me flummoxed, but I’ll persevere!
