Last weeks road trip was to the San Diego County Fair which takes place each year from June 11th to July 5th in Del Mar, CA. This year the landscape and garden exhibits were water wise and full of really interesting succulent displays. I enjoyed the creativity that went into each design and came home with new inspiration and ideas for future plantings.
One of my favorites was this simple Coca Cola carrier with mixed succulents and a glass coke bottle wedged in the middle and pouring out a ‘string of pearls’:
Another crowd favorite were the xeriscapes of ‘living walls’ filled with sedum, aeoniums and echeveria etc. clustered together to create patterns and texture on the palates:
A clever use of fountains filled with a nice assortment of succulents~
Using the same concept as the living wall, this display (below/middle) is filled with garden herbs and vegetables~ A Vertical Garden:
My husband even won me a koala bear at the basketball game booth~
