Dreaming of An Armadillo Succulent Topiary: I Think I Am In Love

While walking through the Chicago Botanic Garden’s greenhouses this season, I fell in love with a little armadillo. Not just any armadillo, mind you, he is a succulent covered testimony to Texas road kill that goes beyond the natural. He is prickly. He is flowery. He is adorable.
And in the spirit of the famous words of Dory the Fish there can only be one name for him, “I shall call him Squishy.”
Go about your lives people: I will continue to fantasize about plants and gardening and, of course, Squishy, while desperately shivering in the arctic cold of Chicagoland .
Love it! I just got some more hens and chicks given to me this last summer. I understand tx road kill, loved there for a few years. So this looks like it could be made with wire and peat moss. Awesome thanks for sharing!
Thanks! Absolutely love the little armadillo – what a creative idea!
I love that little dude. I want one in my garden, perhaps an army of them would look good too!
Squishy, come home! Afraid he might be mistaken for stew meat here, Shawna……
Cherie – how funny! You just made me squirt coffee out my nose laughing! 🙂
I've got a turtle topiary filled with hens and chicks, but this armadillo is adorable!
I love him! He is so cool!! I fell in love with a succulent turtle last summer! 😉
this is good news! enjoy it!
