I mentioned our spontaneous trip to Home Depot last weekend, which lead to our spontaneous day of yard work, but I never mentioned our spontaneous little purchases of a couple spiny little buddies to add to our home!
Well, I wouldn't call them straight-up "killer," more like just killer cute! We were walking through Home Depot on our way to load up on mulch, when I saw the prettiest display of colorful, prickly cacti and I just had to have a couple of my own. I picked out the pretty pair, along with a couple colorful pots to place them in.
When I got them home, I just set them on our floor cabinet in the kitchen for the time being, then Eric and I both agreed they actually look pretty great there - plus, that is a place our curious little cat never goes, so we wouldn't have to worry about him poking his eye out or hurting himself around our spiky new friends.
They add a fun, bright vibe to the kitchen - perfect for this gorgeous, warm week we've been having.
The best part about these houseplants? I probably won't manage to kill them! As long as you don't over water them, they're super easy to care for. Perfect!
P.S. Whenever I say (or type) the word "cacti" I can't help but think of this theme song and its very last line. "Watch out for those man-eating jackrabbits!"
We've got our very own desert right in our little Wisconsin kitchen. Do you have any cacti at home? Any experience with live cacti outdoors?
