We have been itching to start our own garden for the past few years. However we don’t have our own yard yet, so we decided to purchase a few small succulents. Succulents are wonderful because they tend to be low maintenance and they look so lovely. We found these tiny terrariums at Target recently and were inspired to make it happen! We made a trip over to Home Depot to pick out some plants. From the left to right, we picked a Painted Lady, Donkey Tail, and Little Gem. We are excited to place these in our window and start our small garden. Eventually we would like to get into gardening our own vegetables and certain fruits, but since both of us have little experience with gardening, we thought we would start with something small.

    These are so adorable! Living in the PHX desert, it’s hard for me to keep most plants alive so I love succulents 🙂 I’m going to look for these little terrariums next time I’m at Target- how cute!

    These are gorgeous! I’ve been thinking I need more plants in my life, and I think succulents could be the way to go!

    Since seeing those on Pinterest I, too, have been dreaming of a little hanging garden! I also love the way way people put plants in light bulbs or mason jars! In. Love.
