Have Succulents, Will Travel: Austin

If it’s not already obvious, I’ll admit it, I’m nostalgic about pretty much everything when it comes to traveling with my husband. We had spent some time living in Texas a few years ago and boy, was it good to be back! We were greeted with the most beautiful sunset. When I’m asked to describe my blog I usually include gardening, home decor, baking, nature in travel- and that’s where I’m stopped and asked to elaborate. I love to travel and I love to appreciate the unique aspects of nature wherever I go: nature in travel. That’s the inspiration for this new series within my blog, Have Succulents, Will Travel. I love to visit the local succulent purveyors in whatever city I’m visiting and now I’ll be sharing with my readers where I go and what I loved about it!


East Austin Succulents

Located on the same property as Tillery Street Plant Co., under the shade of pecan trees, East Austin Succulents boasts two greenhouses and several outdoor displays with a great selection of succulents and cacti (and soil too!). They offer their services to create arrangements and centerpieces in either your container or one of theirs. Speaking of containers, they have a lot of unique, funky and vintage containers- I wish I would have gotten a better picture. You can see a bit of their container selection on the left side of the above photo. Their motto is, “life is short, surround yourself with beauty” and they certainly deliver on this because the grounds are both peaceful and beautiful. I have followed @eastaustinsucculents on Instagram for a while and it was a pleasure to finally be able to stop by!

    I especially like the photo of the giraffe with the succulents. Seeing this has inspired me to want to plant succulents rather than impatiens on my patio deck. Thanks for sharing your blog with all of us.
