It's hot!

It was 95 degrees today. Yes, 95 degrees on the coast. I'm melting and all of my plants and flowers are looking a little, well, wilty to say the very least. My containers of succulents, however, are loving this little heat spell. As I sit here sweating in front of my fan, I can't help but feel a bit of inspiration. How lovely would a modern Summer wedding or perhaps a fiesta-inspired reception be using a blend of eco-friendly cacti and succulents as centerpieces? This is a budget-friendly option as well as all of these arrangements could be assembled at home months before the wedding (or if you want them to look as spectacular as these, contact Succulent in Los Angeles.) With colors ranging from the obvious greens and sages to the less expected reds, yellows, and purples, I think this might be a plan I need to execute. And soon. Any volunteers?

Well, I have to say at least someone is warm around the country. I am freezing. I don't usually complain about the weather but I can't wait for Spring to show up here in the Mid-West.

I love succulents, so plump and pretty, I have several of pots filled with clusters around my garden, they take almost no care at all, an how great would it be to have one of these delivered - love the idea.
