sucker for succulents
April 22, 2010
Where I live, I can easily get snow on fourth of July. I just had snow yesterday morning.
An indoor garden is my only option this early in the season.
Rockin’ the Dollar Tree 2 inch clay pot 3-pack, I made a mini rooftop garden for inside the house. I’ve got some permanent markers of various fine points and some various city skylines.
There is a multitude of artwork you can find online for your cityscape of just make up your own.
Here is the beginning of Paris.
Hand sketching the buildings in pencil first, I then retraced with the marker and erased the pencil marks once the ink dried. Fill in the buildings and you’re practically ready for planting.
I gave them a coat of Mod Podge as a sealant and you can see they have developed some dirt stains in between because I used too thin of a coat. Or you can use a different type of sealant but the permanent marker is not going to wash away.
Here are San Francisco, New York, and Chicago with plants rescued from Home Depot. Besides the jade plant, I don’t have the rest of the names cause I tossed the original packaging they came in. Doh!
Come on Spring!
