It was my birthday on Friday, so my friend, Amy, took me on an adventure day. After taste-testing donuts (she fancies herself a connoisseur!) we were cruising along to our next destination when we spotted this colorful garden shop on a busy corner in North County.
Located on the corner of Leucadia Blvd, just off Highway 5 to the west, Glorious Gardens is a very cool place! You can’t miss it because the bright colors painted on the fence and shop grab your eye, and then there is the classic old truck out front (which I failed to get a picture of – doh!) that is filled with succulents.
I loved the display ideas. This wall is artfully done using hose clamps to secure the pots to the wall.
This bottle shelf was interesting, and since I’m a glass lover, very appealing to me. Not sure how functional, but does that really have to matter?
I have never seen this succulent, Pepperomia graveolens, before. Pretty color and texture.
In this container, the blue glass top-dressing under the succulents looks like water. Pretty contrast, too.
The shop had a nice selection of succulents and drought tolerant plants. Great plants, imaginative staging, and a helpful shop owner. I’ll be back!
