I can look at succulents all day long. I never grow tired of their colors, shapes and forms and the infinite number of ways that creative gardeners use them in their gardens.
A few months ago, while rushing to get to the airport, my friend insisted we stop at Corona del Mar’s Sherman Library and Gardens, since I hadn’t been there in at least 15 years. Holy Cow how things have changed! While the quaint and charming building was the same, I don’t remember their succulent garden looking anything like it does now. Designed and maintained by Mathew Maggio, these succulents are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen. Whether arranged in symmetrical patterns, tucked into a stairway’s treads or imitating an underwater ocean scene, this jewel-box of a garden is one not to be missed. Enjoy!
