Spring is in the Air!

Spring is in the Air!

IMG_1725The Spring Garden Show last month was a huge success. I was presenting some of my new textures and glazes, and most everything was gone up by the end of the show.

I decided to plant up some of my pots, so I searched everywhere for special specimen plants they would complement the planters. My aesthetic is “organic contemporary”, so I wanted something beautiful and architectural.

The show stopper was the Myrtillocactus geometrizans, aka crested blue candle cactus. I have fallen in love with these beautiful creatures. They are so unique, and remind me of ocean coral with all its different formations.

My other favorite is the Graptopetalum pentandrum. I found some that were blooming with branches of delicate flowers. They are so majestic, but feminine and made a statement all on it’s own.
