Roses are Red, Violets are Blue but Cacti are Green and this is one of the many reasons I love them!
Mario's favorite color is green; he is a nature boy and, like Mario, I also love greenery and flowers. Sadly, I can't keep plants alive; even when I try to care for them, they still die on me. Cacti and Succulents are perfect plants for me and those of you who like me, do not have a "green thumb" because they can thrive with limited water sources.
Another reason why I love Cacti and Succulents is because there are about 60 different plant families of succulents, making them diverse and different - just like all of us! It is important for my husband and I to teach and celebrate diversity with Mario; being different and being yourself is good, just like all the varieties of Succulents and they're striking and unusual appearances! Mario is perfectly Mario with his long hair, his missing front teeth, his impatience for waiting and his love of his stick ropes!
I'm excited about Esty's Difference Makes Us campaign, celebrating all of our un-similarities which is why I am excited to share with you some fun ideas from Etsy to incorporate Cacti and Succulents into your little ones wardrobes and into your homes. Enjoy!
