Cass Flower Shop — Watertown, MA

Cass Flower Shop — Watertown, MA

On Mount Auburn Street in Watertown is this cute little store, Cass Flower Shop and Design School.

Things to See in Boston: Mount Auburn Cemetery

Things to See in Boston: Mount Auburn Cemetery

One of the most beautiful cemeteries in the Boston area is Mount Auburn Cemetery and fortunately it is not too far from where we are living. I’ve actually been twice since we’ve been here.

Propagating Succulents from Leaves in an Altoid Tin

I mentioned about a month ago that I was propagating succulents in altoid tins while I was in Boston. This has actually worked out really well! The only plants that haven’t survived were the Kalanchoe Daigrmontiana but I think that is because I haven’t been watering them as much as I probably should. Continue Reading

One thing that has started to happen with my succulents is they are starting to get little rosettes growing on the trunk. This i a great way to get new plants. You can wait until they get to a decent size (really however big you want), cut them from the trunk, let them dry for… Continue Reading
