So of course that's exactly what I said, and a box of Smart Planet drought tolerant plants showed up on my doorstep on yet another difficult day (yes, there have been a lot of them lately)...
Since it was also another very wet day (lots of those lately too), I unpacked the plants on our dining table. Thankfully they were very well packed plants.
Portulacaria afra ‘Lilliput’
Did I mention how well packed these were?
Crassula ovata ‘Crosby’s Compact’
And that was the only broken leaf in the whole shipment!
Next up, Aeonium ‘Lily Pad’
The happy collection thus far, only one more to open up...
And there it is, Sedum adolphi...
These plants were all packed so well, only one broken leaf and barely any soil that escaped from the packing. I was so hesitant to unpack these indoors but I didn't need to be, this is it for the mess...
And look how cute they are!
And that's when I discovered their unique sized pots slip right into the holes on the top of the table under our shade pavilion!
How fabulous is that?! And since these little cuties don't require much water I won't have to make a mess of the table trying to aim at the pots with the hose, like I did with the ferns I had there last summer. Thanks Smart Planet Plants!
