Strawberry flavored Cactus


Only in California do you get succulents in strawberry boxes.  I thought this was such an interesting juxtaposition.  Yes, I hate to admit it but we are still getting some local berries here in Ojai as well as all the fall veggies too.

These are such pretty and graphic cardboard boxes and I never noticed it before but one side is in English and the other is in French.
I picked up these beautiful succulents from a little grower just off the highway coming into town.  They only take cash and the quality of their plants is amazing.  I am using almost all succulents in containers right now because of our water shortage but also because they require so little work and look so amazing.

The colors really do say fall to me with the green/grays and golds.  I am so jealous of those who are enjoying the turning of the leaves right now.

No frost on the pumpkins yet, although is was 37 degrees this morning.  I love it!

  1. And how appropriate that you should be the first person to comment on my post tonight! Thanks so much i loved what you said!

  2. Lovely pics. What interested me is that you could notice the little details that made those cardboard boxes stand out with one side in English and the other in French. That kind of observation is noteworthy because I'm not sure I'd have noticed it at all. Waiting for more posts.

  3. Oh, I love those succulents, and how awesome they look in that great box! I would love to wake up to 37 degrees. I'm in Orlando and it was a sweltering 95 degrees today.
    Waiting for Fall,

  4. The only outdoor succulents here in frosty-cold New England are things we call "hens and chicks"!
    The leaves are almost done turning and it is unseasonably cold even for October at 34 degrees this am!

  5. Great post and a beautiful blog, looking forward to follow you !
