• Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

spring succulents

IMG_1.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_4.jpgIMG_5.jpg IMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpgIMG_6.jpg IMG_9.jpgEarlier last month I went on a succulent shopping spree. Having killed the majority of my plants over the past year, I feel as if I now have a firm grasp on what not to do when trying to grow succulents. With some extra help from a few friendly workers at Home Depot, and this wonderful article from Kinfolk Magazine, I am feeling effervescent (my word of the day). Lookout, Spring, here I come.

“Often by April the snow has melted, to return to the prairie, one hopes, only for brief periods. It is a season of muted colour that holds a special beauty.”

  1. Emory, love this post! Succulents are the best! I love the variety of the different pots, so cute and interesting!

    Thanks for checking out my blog post on painted terra cotta pots!


  2. Love that lace skirted planter… great idea! Such pretty bits of springiness :) ❤


  3. So much to love about succulents! Looks like you planted them well in proper planters. We hope ours don’t die without a hole for water to drain!

    Succulent. Makes you want to eat the word. Yes Emma you pay wayyyy too much attention to them. Little water and ignore. Let them do their thing.

    Ooh lovely! From my experience, I say don’t overwater them, and otherwise they should be all fine. Good luck! :-)
