Speaking of Good Nurseries, Agave is a fun one to check out.

Another nursery story now, with a happier ending than the last post. After reading the book I reviewed last week, Designing with Succulents by Debra Lee Baldwin, I decided I was ready to begin my succulent garden. I headed out to a place I have visited previously, but at that time wasn’t armed with the knowledge I gained from reading that book. I was really able to appreciate this nursery so much more this time around.

Agave Landscape and Nursery specializes in cacti and succulents, with some very cool choices and exotics that I haven’t seen in other nurseries around. (Though I’ve heard that Gardens has some great succulents, but I haven’t  yet gone to see).  Owned and operated by a young couple, its only less than 3 miles south of the Y in Oak Hill, out 290 West. Great service, fun visit, an easy drive.

I’ll be posting pics of my new succulents and the arrangement I did with it as soon as I get them off my camera. I spent 20 hours over the last two days in the Garden, and finally finished some incomplete projects. It feels so good!

WordPress is having photo issues right now, and photos are randomly not displaying. I’ll post my succulent images and new work after they are back up and running.
