There really is no shortage of beautiful places in Southern California, especially in San Diego. While years ago, when we moved here I had a hard time adjusting to the desert-y landscape and the lack of the lush greenery that was surrounding us in upstate New York, years later I have come to love the multitude of succulents and other native plants.
There is something very attractive about all the different shapes and sizes of the succulents around here, and I enjoy discovering desert gardens whenever we come across them. I was shocked at first to find succulents that are as big as the trees and just as strong to withstand winds and whatever else comes their way.
