potting area at work

Next door to my son’s coffee shop, Ristretto Roasters, is a delightful shop called Ink & Peat. Many of the succulents in this shop are planted not in soil, but in moss. Long ago (so long ago that I can’t remember where) I picked up this wire shoe. Putting two and two together (shoe + mediumless succulents) I decided to try an experiment. I filled the shoe with moss and stuck in a few of the overflow clippings of succulents. Time will tell how successful this experiment will be, but it looks pretty cute right now, don’t you think?

  1. Jane: Sorry, these are old-timers (before caring about names), but I will keep looking, and when it is identified, will let you know.
    Loree: Some of the plump little leaves are already starting to look a little stressed. Maybe they need spraying every so often. Did you by any chance stop by Ristretto for a cuppa?

  2. I see these wire things at Goodwill and always think about getting one. After seeing yours I’ve got a renewed interest. I love yours. I’ve seen large-ish animal shaped ones. Ooh, la, la.
