Among the whirlwind of a month I have been having I was able to sneak in a little plant party over the weekend. A couple of friends and I partook in some good old fashion gardening.. with style. We had some yummy mimosa’s and snacks in my yard, planted a couple succulents, and our dear friend Jason taught a couple of us girls how to make coconut leaf hats!!
Coconut leaf hats. It was a dream come true for me. I have always wanted to own one.. but to actually make it for myself?! Dreamy. Such a treat. And I have been obsessed with succulents lately. About a month ago I bought heaps of succulents via ebay (of all places.) They all needed a bit of love and replanting. Some of them.. okay most of them.. stayed with me. But a couple of them got new homes.
Since I have been out of surf sliding commission (Due in part to a surf injury two weeks ago. Yes, sad but true. I didn’t want to make it a big deal so I never mentioned it. But 2 weeks later and I’m just about healed!) it was the perfect opportunity to get rootsy. All in all: such a nice, relaxing day.
And now there are plenty of plants to go around!
