I always come home from the Pasadena showcase house filled with inspiration! Last year it was all about patios.... which ended with us tearing out the old BBQ, buying new furniture, umbrellas, and huge pots and filling them with dwarf fruit trees! (see our feb. post 2009) Well this year my husbands wallet got off easy. I came home inspired to plant succulents! We always plant color in pots on our tables, which die in the summer heat. So I ran to the nursery, came home and filled the pots I bought last year with succulents. I think they will be easier to keep alive and I love the way they look! The whole project only took an hour!
This is blue agave which the nursery guy told me is what they make Tequila out of
so you know what that means... partaaaay at my house!
