During this past summer I posted on my trip to Whitefish Point, Michigan, when we walked on the beach by the Coast Guard Station. Lake Superior was covered with the most wonderful rocks. Each in colors of the sea, smoothed with the rolling tides of time.
The sea at this spot was where the "Edmond Fitzgerald" sank. You remember the song on the radio back in the 80's, Gordon Lightfoot sang of this true story.
November 10, 1975 the bulk freighter Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior with all hands.
We first waked through the museum then down to the beach. I carried some of those wonderful rocks back to Florida and the baggage handler put a "Heavy" sign on my suitcase...
I thought it was time to put my souvenirs to good use and made myself a Succulent Garden.
There were a few succulents in small pots on my potting table and I also bought a few more.. layered a large terracotta saucer with small rocks and some orchid medium.. a bit of sand and soil then laid the tiny plants in between the rocks.
Love this little one called "Baby Toes"
The Hens and Chickens were from a cutting.
Now to wait for the little plants to grow.
I found a succulent wreath on Pinterest and am thinking of making one for my front door!
Would look fabulous, don't you think?
Was wondering if the open and closing of the door would knock the plants off?
Hopefully I don't kill them
We are expecting rain today,, it's been quite a while here and the area has been in a Fire Warning for the past few weeks.. Florida has had 69 brush fires and this rain is needed really bad. Bring it on!
Happy Birthday to me!
