Happy Holidays from Succulents and More!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, or whatever else you might be celebrating at this special time of year!

Relax with friends and family, and forget about the turmoil in the real world for a little while.

This year I fell hard for holiday light laser projectors. After I saw our neighbor’s, I had to have my own. So instead of agaves decorated with glass balls, I give you bamboo with pulsating twinkles.

Here are a few more photos:

And our neighbor’s house across the street that inspired me:

    1. The same to you, Alison! Christmas kind of snuck up on me this year, but now that work (of the annoying day job kind) is done for the year, I can finally let loose.

  4. I was at a party at Sean's house over the summer when he had these lights (or similar) in the huge bamboo planting off the deck at the back of the house. It was a fun effect. Happy Holiday weekend, Happy Vacation!

  5. The bamboo looks beautiful! What a cheery sight! Those are kind of thick culms. What type is it? Happy holidays, Happy New Year!

    1. Rachel, the bamboo is Bambusa chungii 'Barbellata'. The culms are beautiful icy blue.
