Echeveria sp. 'Green Waterlily'...❥


Let me introduce you to this FABULOUS succulent plant.
It is called 'Green Waterlily' and is from the Echeveria species.
I simply adore the shape of this plant.
It resembles a waterlily, hence its name.
This beautiful succulent forms a compact large rosette.
The leaves are mid green with the tips tinged with pink.
It really is a beautiful addition to pots.
And that is exactly what I have done with it...


planted it in a low squat pot...


 for on the summer outdoor table.

The Green Waterlily is a low maintenance plant that tolerates dry conditions.
All you need to do to keep it healthy is a once-yearly fertilise with slow release type fertiliser.
Water only water once the soil is dry.
Keep in a full sun location and protect it from frosts.

And your happy Echeveria will reward you with interesting spikes of flowers in Spring.

Old Bottle Decor Piece

Bottle Craft
Take an old key.
And an old bottle.
Grab a little rustic twine.
Put it all together and you have a table display piece to add to your vignettes.
There is nothing difficult about this DIY.
Old bottles are thrift shop finds.
You could also use a new bottle in an interesting colour or shape or empty liqueur bottle as they are often stylish designs.

Old bottle
All you do is:
Wrap twine around the neck of the bottle of your choice to make a collar.
I have left my bottle drastically dirty as I think it makes it much more interesting.   
But you can use a sparkly clean bottle if you wish.

Then attach an old key to the string at the neck and knot to secure.

Bottle craft
Place in your decor vignette.
