"This was the first succulent wreath I'd ever created and it took me hours to put it together. It consisted of a mixture of lime green, mint, and pink colored succulents.

It was a great experience to see the transformation of one of your wreath frames into what I call, garden art – and it's my most favorite garden creation that I've made to this day."
