Notes from a Flower Farm: Decorating With Succulents
Inspired by a family trip to Palm Springs, our floral columnist creates fresh arrangements using succulents. Mixed with seasonal flowers and displayed in old silver containers, this is a whole new take on a trendy group of plants.
Every spring my family and I trot down to Palm Springs for a weekend of sun and ease, an attempt to wring the winter wet out of our Seattle systems. My kids won’t tolerate a whole lot of mid-century furniture and garden accessories browsing while we are there, which I would love to spend days doing, but what they will do happily is tromp around the cacti. They look for rabbits and lizards while I stalk desert flowers with my camera.
