Dutch Oven Garden

At the Garden Day I went to recently, I bought this succulent.
At last, something to plant in my old cast iron dutch oven.
A few months ago I left the pot burning too long in one spot, and the enamel cracked.
So I bought a new one the next time they were on sale at Aldi.
I couldn't bring myself to just throw it out and have been waiting to find some plants for it.
So this was a nice quick project after a day of garden inspiration.

I'm not sure if this is really going to grow, I have my suspicions about that plant stall,
but it's looking good, especially with some added colour from some mosaic tiles I found in the shed.
(which were long ago planned for another project).

Hello Fiona, just catching up now I am back, I have been reading, just not commenting. I love your little garden in a pot, and the tiles look so good with the succulent, a really great contrast between the two!! Your cards in your last post are great too, very suitable for men! xx
