I have an old cracked birdbath that still leaked despite trying to seal the cracks.

So I decided to use it as a planter instead!

I thought succulents would be the best choice and picked them based on size, color, and texture.

I used Aeonium “Blushing Beauty”, Kalanchoe “Aurora Borealis”, Graptosedum “Alpenglow”, Portulacaria “Rainbow Elephant Bush” and Mimicry plants.

I then filled in the gaps with different colored mosses. I am absolutely delighted with the result and my fairy garden is a showcased feature in my yard.

What do you think?

I think it’s lovely! Thanks for sharing.
