Succulent Contest Winners
August, 2015 Contest “I knew I was a succulent addict when…”
What a fabulous contest! Choosing the winners was fun for my neighbors, I could hear them laughing as they read them. Unfortunately they were not able to get to a unanimous decision on the top 5 so we decided that we will be giving out 10 FREE pots of Succulents.
Thank you everyone who entered, I am so happy to know that there are at least 140 other true succulents addicts out there. We will be announcing the September Succulent Contest soon!
And the top 5 succulent addicts admissions are………….Drumroll please…………..
|I had a dream that I died and went to heaven and the path to the pearly gates was lined with succulents.|
|I realized I’d given them all human nicknames, like “Penelope” and “Charles”|
|I had to start hiding my purchases from my husband (some women buy clothes and hide them, I buy succulents). “What, this old plant? I’ve had it forever…” 😉|
|I begged my husband to load up a 60lb piece of driftwood on our ski boat when we were vacationing on a lake and drive it 7 hrs back home.|
|I was at the farmer’s market and happened to be wearing a crocheted shawl. As I walked by a large table of cacti and succulents I got a bit too close and suddenly realized there were several cute little plants attached to my shawl, hanging on for dear life. They were so cute and looked so desperate, luke they wanted to escape, I had to buy them. That’s how it all started.|
|My seven your old daughter started following me around in order to stop me from “stealing” succulents from, well basically everywhere.|
|When my family told me I needed to go to SA succulent anonymous!|
|I bought plastic ones and put them in dark places of my home. Also when I go to the store and the first thing I do is go look at succulents to ßee what I don’t have. Going to dress up as as succulent for Halloween and hasnd out babysucculents to kids. Why not get them stared early.|
|my wife asked me why I was buying all these plants., and dropping hints like (your making the mailman get out of his truck again).|
