Succulent Bowl

For the last two years, we have mostly grown vegetables on our balcony garden – tomatoes, courgettes* and onions, for example. However, this year we are diversifying into flowers, herbs and – heaven help us – decorative plants. (But perhaps this is not such a radical shift; after all, the first ever plant I ever bought on was a decorative palm.)

The new additions include five small succulents...

...which we used to make a succulent bowl.

We chose an arrangement that we thought looks aesthetically pleasing (for now). I will be interested to see how it develops as the plants grow and change their shape.

*Five pedantry points if you were about to point out that tomatoes and courgettes are technically fruits.
