i heart succulents!

this obsession i have with succulents probably began while living in santa barbara (see older post). there are many reasons why i love this plant family and i shall list then in no particular order right now:
1. i like their color palate.
2. love the crazy dr. seuss-like shapes... by the way, the dr. lived in socal thus many of his drawings were inspired by all the wacky plants that are grown (or trimmed) there.
3. succulents remind me of underwater plants and i like anything oceanic because deep down wish i was mermaid...still.
4. due to reasons 1-3 i like to use succulents as artistic inspiration.
5. they are easy to keep alive in your apartment, even if you forget to water them for a month... or two.

i shot these on my last trip to oc.
