Secret Succulent Fairy and Gnome Sign Up
How it works:
All participants must have a U.S. Mailing address
Send me a private message include your name and mailing address
Sign up starts today and ends June 5th..On June 6th I will be sending each of you a name and address...You will be this persons Fairy/Gnome. If you sign up you are committed to sending a package to the person that you are given...Everyone is a Fairy/Gnome to someone, and everyone has a Fairy?Gnome.
Package will contain No less than 5 items.. the items can be leaves, babies, cuttings a beheaded flower or a rooted plant...
If you are feeling generous you may send more than 5 ..But you are required to send 5 different items..
Do not send 5 of the same items..you can send all leaves if you wish, but they must be 5 different leaves. Or you can mix with a combination of 5 different things..Examples shown in picture below.
REMEMBER: a lot of Fairies?Gnomes are succulent newbies, that being said, do not expect to receive some rare and exotic succulent. This is just about having fun and the anticipation of waiting on a surprise to arrive in the mail. Please be happy with what you get..
Your Fairy's/Gnomes name will be drawn from a hat ...You may keep it a secret or you may share..I will also be playing, that being the case..I will obviously know who my Fairy or Gnome is. The very last name left in the hat will be the person I will send to.. If you prefer to keep it very secret than I can opt out.
Each Fairy/Gnome is responsible to pay for the postage of the package they send..I will be sending mine out by first class mail.. It is recommended that you send your package in a small box to avoid the plants/leaves from being crushed.
Please send your package out by June 25th...If every thing works out well we will play again in July.
Please send me a private message when your package has arrived..It will also be helpful if you send me the tracking number of your package, by doing so I can pass the information on to the recipient . This is especially helpful to those who have a P.O. Box.
Examples....these are only examples ..make up your own and have FUN!
I am working on a new project, this time using succulents.
This is an old water fountain that my Aunt gave me. It has been sitting in my back yard for years. The pump went out ages ago and I never got around to getting a new one.
That being said, I decided to give it a new purpose.
Can't wait for it to fill in!
I am now on the look out for rare or hard to fin varieties..
I may try seeds,,,
Have you tried growing succulents with seeds or with cuttings ?
I have been working on this planter, so far I like how it looks.
I can't wait for it to fill in .
As I was watering it this morning a tiny little frog hopped out..Wonder if it will come back and make this planter a froggy home.
This basket has served me well in the kitchen holding utensils and such, now it will serve me well adding color to the patio.
I have been spending a bit more time in the garden, planting, dead-heading and creating fun to me planters.
Trying to get this creeping Jenny to grow up and around the heart shaped wire that I covered with moss..So far it is doing really well..I am pleased as punch. Hanging from the top center of the heart is a crystal from an old chandelier. The plant in front is a pretty leafy plant. I love the colors of the green and pink leaves with a spattering of dots. The name of this plant is..well, it is actually called polka dot plant. I also added a couple of Marjolin Bastines bird planter picks to the mix. The heart shape wreath really isn't as crocked as it appears...The truth of the matter is I need a lot more practice taking pictures
