Urban Jungle Bloggers #17
Spring is here! We had some incredible sunshine this week and the first cacti in the greenhouse had a growth spurt! The Euphorbia ingens succulent (no it's not a cactus!) in our kitchen is still in hibernation, so he let me dress him up for Easter without resistance ;)
For last year's Easter styling with Urban Jungle Bloggers, I created a nest and planted succulents and cacti in egg shells. Spring and Easter means eggs & nesting to me, which is very real here at home because we have a green woodpecker couple nesting in a tree outside. They are loud and squawk day and night. I call them terror birds.
Anyway, back to our Easter styling with plants. I realized I had this box with fluffy feathers that I collected as a 7-year-old. So I turned my Euphorbia into a bunch of Indians and Easter bunnies:
A feathery nest requires a fluffy nest-like plant, like this hairy cactus, a Cephalocereus senilis (a.k.a. Old Man Cactus hahaha):
My favorites as a 7-year-old girl were the polkadotted Guineafowl feathers, the small red Ara feather and the pink one... of course! This is the entire collection:
Fluffy and ready for Easter:
