Plants on the Brain... and Molly Wood Garden Design

I must have plants on the brain today... I just received a great little email with inspiring photos from Molly Wood Garden Design. She is an amazing landscape designer that I met last year when she worked on Project Playhouse-definitely having her work on my home... someday!

She has a fantastic little studio and shop @1660 Orange Avenue Costa Mesa, CA 92627.

I had the pleasure of visiting last year around Christmas and picked up some great wreaths as well as a beautiful succulent box for a gift.

Lately my feelings toward the succulent have changed. I have never been a big fan of the succulent maybe because I expect different things from my garden. I don't want to feel like I live in the desert- you know. But lately I am falling for them-have they become more stylish? Do I like them for their drought tolerant style? Have they been cool all along and I am just crazy? Well, they look great here and are easy care and maintenance! And as you know having plants in your home has many benefits- better air quality and great accents to name a few!
