A final shell and taste of summer

Here is my final shell planting. I’ve been working on planting succulents in shells over the last couple weeks and this is the last one of the series. (For now anyways:)

I’ve also included a bunch of summer flowers which are made up of dahlias, zinnias and lotus pods. I placed the vase in a vintage vegetable box for that casual and weathered look. (Thanks for helping with the great flower selection Bess!)

Rogers Gardens – Corona del Mar

By sheer coincidence I ran across the most extensive and incredible garden center I have ever been in my entire life. I was so overwhelmed it took me a while to realize I should take some pictures to share. Honestly, this place has something for everyone. The staff was really nice and the experience was pretty much perfect. If you ever find yourself in the OC area, you have to go. This place has EVERYTHING!!!!

I didn’t get to take a pic of the yummy lunch I had. The Soho Taco truck was there for the weekend. Delicious!

Succulents in shells


Succulents in shells can be really stunning and add a low maintenance, beautiful and beachy element to any home. I did a few myself which I will shoot and share in the next couple days. I hope you enjoy these beautiful images as well. I have a board dedicated to succulents on Pinterest as well.

Also, here is a good link for planting tips.
