If you don’t live in Southern California you might be lucky: It’s awful hot here! And not just any hot, I’m talking sticky hot; can’t sleep hot; late August HOT!! It’s because of this horrid, humid heat that I thought I’d share the cooling, soothing tones of some of my favorite succulents. These can be found at the LA Plaza de Cultura y Arte’s vertical garden installation (click here) in downtown LA. I went downtown last week to commemorate my unexpected departure from the working world at this time last year. The garden wall had been one of my favorite sights on my way into the office, so it was my first stop; I had to see how it was doing. I was relieved to see that despite the stifling heat it was just fine — thriving, even. The grassy elements of the tapestry might’ve been gasping but the succulents still teemed colorfully. Being before the garden wall again made me smile, like seeing an old friend. I saw more old friends later that evening and there were many more smiles … it was a good day!
