I’ll never forget the first time I saw succulents… It was my cousin’s wedding. She and her fiance were to be married in their new home, though there was hardly anything new about it. Their New Orleans home was in the process of being rennovated after enduring Hurricane Katrina.
Their front room had countless glass globes hanging from the ceiling, each holding a succulent from the groom’s native California. How awesome, right? I loved the way they looked – their thick, pillowy leaves were very distinct and with little soil around them it was apparent they required very little upkeep.
