My love for plants started in college when I bought my first spider plant. I cannot tell you how many black & white images I took of that dang plant. I send my deepest apologies to my photography professors. I now get it. Not everyone is into pictures of plants like I am. However, I managed to keep that spider plant alive for 5 years and made some new plants from cuttings. When I moved home to California, I moved into a new apartment with Casey where I proceeded to kill it. Caring for plants is a learning process. You have to pay attention, take notes and act accordingly. I’ve learned so much since then and I strive to learn even more!
I recently had a little Crazy Plant Lady date with my friends Jen & Leslie. We met for lunch and then headed Flora Grubb Gardens where I fell in love…felt paralyzed and vowed to come back AGAIN and AGAIN. If you’re into plants and you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, this place IS IT. It is purely plant heaven. The only thing I regret was delaying my first visit for this long. If you haven’t gone, GO.
DO. NOT. DELAY.
I’ve seen Flora Grubb Garden featured in so many magazines and I can see why it’s garnered so much attention. It’s nothing short of amazing. The environment makes you want to become more of a crazy plant lady.
Not only do they have unusual plants, they’re a great source for inspiration. You will be blown away with some of their planting arrangements. One day I will have one of these guys.
The staff is really friendly too. I was able to troubleshoot why I had such a hard time with one of my plants with a member of the staff. I totally over-watered…
Incredible, right? I love the deep purple/pinks.
These ones reminded me of Beetlejuice. If I say it three times can I take one of these plants home?
Nothing makes me happier than seeing little baby succulents lined up.
Wall art that makes you want to touch it. Makes you think about what you can add to your backyard…
This little guy came home with me. It’s the second prickly cactus I own. Cooper is obsessed.
I have major table envy. It’s like a permanent arrangement and totally non-intrusive.
Can we talk about the lush garden around it? Don’t think I don’t notice you, Japanese Maple.
Little treasures everywhere. Proof that small things can make a big impact.
We need a big succulent B in our backyard. On the TO DO LIST.
And possibly some birdhouses? I DID come home with some air plants.
The best part is that they serve Ritual Coffee there so you can hangout in the garden with a tasty cappuccino.
My name is Tracy and I am a crazy plant lady.
Can’t stop/won’t stop.
Don’t delay! GO NOW.
