Succulents are a gorgeous alternative to traditional flowers, or in addition to in your summer garden.

The nice thing about succulents is that they are pretty low maintenance for those of you that don’t have a green thumb. (like me 🙂 ) Not to mention they are so gorgeous. The idea of putting the succulents in a frame is genius. Thanks to Luna See, they had this great way to put them on display. The frame would look gorgeous leaning against a fence, the house, or even on your deck. Do you love succulents?
