For those who live in/near Los Angeles, the San Gabriel Cactus and Succulent society are having their annual show at the Los Angeles arboretum today and tomorrow... good show to attend as many plants are becoming active this time of year and looking about as good as they're going to look all year round.

Was not a super well attended event, sadly... good show. Starting to recognize the same plants show to show, though. Still, some nice new stuff at this one. Some of my favorites below.

Gasteraloe Ghost of Carlsbad, Lithops divergens, Pseudolithos migiurtinis, Sansevieria gracillima and Agave Streaker

Gorgeous plants. I especially like the Gasteraloe. The Lithops look like purple grapes, so special!

How do they do it? They don't look natural. Its almost discouraging to see such spectacular specimens. But not quite so I will keep up my efforts.
Thanks for the photos. They are spectacular as well.
BTW Geoff, how is your house situation?

Helen: we must have been on the same wave length! Sometimes it does discourage me a bit to see such plants.
I have also just been thinking of Palmbob and his house. I'm so sorry to hear about losing it soon. Hopefully you can move on and still have a garden, Geoff.

I will always have a garden... just not necessarily in the climate I want

Maybe a bigger garden in a different climate.
Good luck. There will be a silver lining somewhere.

new challenges and new information to accumulate. I may finally get to learn what it's like to grow most of my succulents in a truly marginal climate (moving to zone 9a most likely).

Fabulous pics, Geoff. I agree that there will definitely be a silver lining somewhere and am wishing you the very best in your new home.
