You’re never too old to learn… Succulent Picture Frame.


Gather round students…. the Maine  is this for real?  Adult Education classes continue.

If you live in Maine  you can learn some wonderful things. So far in this riveting series we’ve had:


You’re never too old to learn…. Spoons.

You’re never to old to learn…. Potatoes.

You’re never too old to learn…. Ukulele

You’re never too old to learn…. Chakra Toning.

You’re never too old to learn…. Mindfulness.

You’re never to old to learn…. Tin Cans.

You’re never too old to learn…. Knotweed Flutes.


And today we continue with Succulent Picture Frames.

(Disclaimer – This class does not require sucking. But I think that’s offered at PT’s Showclub in Portland.)




Course description:

Succulent Picture Frame 

Having live plants around as we transition into fall will brighten every day and beautify your home. You will set up your own succulent picture frame with a variety of plants to create your own living art! You will also receive instruction on how to care for this gorgeous creation to enjoy it all year long. The price of the course includes all materials to make one succulent picture frame. Materials fee of $60 included in the price of the course. No discounts.


A frame. Made out of plants.

My first question is why?

Don’t get me wrong, I love plants… they’re beautiful and versatile.



As well as great disguises when you’re stalking an ex.



They can even rid your house of pesky flies… I get it.



Though we all know that can go horribly wrong…



But hell, I can hardly be bothered to dust my current picture frames, now they want me to water one?


Because while I have lovely outdoor gardens, and a house full of healthy green leafy plants?

I will kill each and every succulent I touch.




I must over water….. or love them too much.

Because yes, apparently that’s a thing.



So if I want my walls to be covered in framed plants?

I’ll just dye my cobwebs green and call it good.

  1. River,
    Wait, why the Stormy Daniels ad? Hold on. I have to go back and re-read this…okay a non sequitur in pictures…got it! Was this a bet that you could work that into your post on succulents? And you kill succulents? Wow. That’s an interesting skill.

  3. Your last idea gave me a brainstorm: I’ll paint the big bald spot on my head grey (to match what little hair remains) and call it good.
    Hopefully, the brainstorm won’t wash the paint away before it dries.

  4. Wow….So much to learn and people “to do” in Maine. 😂😂😂😂

    Why would anyone want a plant picture frame though? Is that a thing? Is it only me that’s annoyed by the concept? I’d rather have a big ole barn. 😃

  5. Mix this class with a wine/beer tasting and imagine the fun! You know, like those “paint and sip” learn-to-watercolor classes. Who cares what the end product looks like (or if it survives, in the case of succulents)?
