As soon as we pulled up to our house in Palm Springs last week, one thing that immediately struck me was how beautiful the plant life was – and how different it was to what I’m used to on the East Coast. I’ve always had a thing for desert plants — and I have lots of little potted succulents scattered all around my home — but to see them actually growing from the ground was so cool. There were so many different kinds of cacti… all different shapes and colors; some with flowers, some without. It was all too gorgeous not to share with you all. Here’s a taste of the plant life that surrounded our house in Palm Springs. I’m thinking I might have to create a little cacti garden to top off my kitchen table.
The plant above was my absolute favorite. I love the artichoke-like shape, and how the faded blue-green color contrasts with the black tips of each leaf.
We had an orange tree in our front yard! I was so excited.
Palm trees for days.
There was even a mini succulent garden on the table in our backyard.
