I was going to include these photos in my last post, but didn’t want to put you to sleep with too many images. So here are some succulent topiaries found in the Mexican Garden at San Diego Botanic Garden:
I do like mariachi bands. They play at Mexican restaurants all over San Diego and some of the singers are really wonderful. “Besame Mucho” gets me every time. This succulent mariachi band is playing for a nearby couple:
These two look like they could use some water. 😉
I’m not sure these really qualify as topiaries. They could have just planted a lot of succulents in a growing medium within the forms, instead of training the plants. I’ll ask the next time we’re there.
She definitely has the best outfit.
I’m becoming a big fan of succulents. Low maintenance, low water, beautiful. I once lived near a house with nothing but succulents in the front yard. It looked kind of strange the first year, but later transformed into a lovely garden. I’ll have to see how it looks now and take some photos.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
