So the good news is, the jade wreath is still doing great on my front door. We're about eight weeks in and it looks the same.
The great news is the jade plants in my backyard are still triving. Above and below you can see photo of the new growth that's popping up in the places where I snipped pieces off.
Every snipped end has two new pieces growing out of it. This is what I hoped would happen, but it's nice to see it in action.
And the best news is that ampersand that Target has had for awhile finally went on clearance. I have passed by this guy at least 45 times in the past few months. But finally, once I saw it was marked down, something clicked and I decided to turn it into a succulent planter.
And started planting my jade clippings (I use a knitting needle to poke holes in the dirt).
It took a lot of jade to fill it in but it was totally easy - much easier than making the wreath.
It's hanging in the backyard on the fence. So, far, four days in, it's still alive and kicking. This is a total experiment; I have no idea how long it will last or how it will do. It's making me smile when I look outside though, that is for sure.
Can't wait to finish up our patio space - we're getting there.
