I had an opportunity for an overnight trip to Santa Cruz and Capitola this week. Made sure to stop at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum, since I’d never been there. It was mid day, windy and winter, but I still managed to snap a few pics. I’d like to go back in Spring/Summer. The cute gift shop sells succulents and other plants and garden accessories. Didn’t have time to shop, but … Aaa’ll be back.

Succulent heaven…

100 buckaroonies! I need to go into the succulent planter business!


Free plants! How cool is that?



This looks to be some sort of a propagation area near the offices.
