Cactus Cool! The only trend little ones should pick this spring

Fuerteventura Botanical Garden

I am a plant killer. As hard as I try I haven’t in all my years been able to keep a plant alive.

I have even killed the ‘unkillable’ Cactus. Yes, I am that person.

Before resigning myself to plastic foliage I thought I would give the much Instagrammed Succulents a try.

My (still alive)  Succulent plant…on Instagram 

So far, so good. I have yet to send them to plant heaven.

Really though I was inspired after our recent holiday to Fuerteventura where we saw the beautiful Botanical Garden (part of the Oasis Park) which has over 2,000 varieties of cactus – who knew?

Seems the humble cactus is having a moment as I’ve spotted them on the high street too. Perfect for tapping into this season Mexican kids fashion trend.

Here’s a few of my favourite prickly fashion and home finds…

    Absolutely loving that cactus vase! No idea how you managed to kill a cactus though, that must take skill
