Supporting Local Businesses: Succulent Gardens

Recently, I finally visited the Succulent Gardens: The Growing Grounds, which is located on Elkhorn Rd., just around the corner from where I live. After moving their business from Carmel to Elkhorn, the collection of succulents surrounding their buildings has been growing and beautifying the neighborhood. Upon watching the youtube video of Robin giving a tour of the gardens, I realized that the owners of the Succulent Gardens are really artists, and that the succulents comprise their palette of organic colors and shapes:

I took a few photographs as I walked around, and became fascinated with the variety of sculptural shapes and colors that you can find in these wonderful plants:

The Succulent Gardens also offers vases, patio decorations, wreath forms and frames, so you can make your own succulent creations.


Succulents are also beautiful works of art all by themselves.
