Here’s a bit more from our California trip. We visited The Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek. It was a hot, sunny day which seemed very appropriate since this garden features cacti and succulents. There were lots of cute little cacti.
And great big cacti too. I have know idea what that plant with the purple flowers is.

Bright, blinding, ice plant!?
Gaillardia, I believe?
Brains! Brains! Brains!
Not brains. Aloes, perhaps?

I really enjoyed this garden. I’ve often fantasized about having a succulent and cacti garden. I’d don’t live in a place where this is feasible, too much clay and rain. They have tons of awesome pictures, much better than mine, on flickr.
