Bizarre creatures with vegetation for brains — sound like anyone you understand? — greeted me at East Austin Succulents final week. They have been silent varieties with massive personalities. This ghostly man with ghost plant (Graptopetalum paraguayense) sprouting from his brow could have been my favourite.
This one’s spookier, with a little bit of zombie in his blank-eyed, open-mouthed expression. He’s splendidly planted although.
Need a full-body planter? They’ve these too. Suspended in a line, they appear like streakers operating a 5K — doing their half to maintain Austin bizarre!
A devilish however placid fellow sports activities a cactus atop his head. I’m wondering what you’d discover in the event you opened the door to his coronary heart?
East Austin Succulents conjures up with their one-of-a-kind cactus and succulent planters, they usually’ll plant up something, even Radio Flyer wagons. This miniature rock backyard is actually lovely.
And you may’t miss their big moon cactus sculpture as you stroll in. The surprising is what this place is all about.
