Succulent arrangement
I created yesterday after a visit
to a wonderful cactus nursery called "La Unión".
I used an old rusty sowing plate (about 16 inches in diameter)
that I bought at the junk yard
to hold all my newly acquired treasures.
I was inspired by some amazing vessels
by Big Red Sun, a nursery in Austin, TX.
Thanks Toddy!

I just bought several cacti also...put them in several clay pots in a grouping...such fun even in muggy Florida! Love your use of different textures and sizes.

Adoro las suculentas!!! Tengo una preciosa en mi jardin. Linda la composición que hiciste. Una amiga me mencionó alguna vez que éstas ayudan a neutralizar la energía de las computadoras. Sabes algo sobre esto?

Bueno Geninne, siempre es un gusto venir a ver las bellezas que cuelgas en tu blog. Hasta pronto!

I live in Mexico City too (soy mexicana), and I suspect you live near my childhood home, but I'm not sure.

I found your blog in Illustration Friday. You make such wonderful things!

I've wanted a similar succulent composition for a while. Where is La Unión?
