Shells and Succulents


This past Saturday we spent a day in Tarpon Springs, a lovely Greek town, with lots to do and see. Besides eating delicious Greek food we booked a boat tour to a small island for shelling.




What to do with the sand and the shells? display them of course!



I collected succulents from the garden and planted them in tiny pots filled with moist potting soil.




The pots are placed in the apothecary jar and the beach sand is added.




I tucked in a couple pieces of driftwood and some shells, ....




... and covered the soil with moss.




All that is needed is a small paintbrush to clean up the sand on the inside wall and the memory of a day at the beach is done. 




The succulents won't need much water, a couple teaspoons or so every other week since the lidded jar keeps the moisture inside.
