2013 Succulent Extravaganza, part 2

Before I continue with part 2 of my 2013 Succulent Extravaganza coverage, I’d like to express my gratitude to the people who made this event possible: Robin Stockwell, Tiffany Polli and everybody else at Succulent Gardens; the many helpers who volunteered their time; and the speakers whose presentations inspired us. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. Without you, this event would not have happened, or it wouldn’t have been what it was.

In part 1 I took you through the grounds and retail greenhouse at Succulent Gardens. Part 2 is unadulterated succulent porn—nothing but pretty pictures captured during the 2013 Succulent Extravaganza. I have labeled the photos as best I could but if you spot any errors, please let me know in the comment section.

If you missed the 2013 Succulent Extravaganza, it’s not too early to plan ahead for 2014. No date yet, but it’s safe to say the 2014 Succulent Extravaganza will be at the end of September or beginning of October.

And if you live in Southern California, Waterwise Botanicals in Escondido will have a Fall Garden Party on October 25 and 26, 2013. For more details, go to http://fallgardenparty.com/.
