    I feel kind of bad for our readers, because this is the 3rd or 4th week in a row that I’ve focused my energies on garden design. But, in my defense, it’s STILL snowing. And not just snowing, the tree outside of my window has inches of snow plastered to it. My car got stuck in its street side parking spot. It’s unacceptable. I want to grab a glass of ice-cold lemonade and sit in a wicker rocking chair, feeling a warm breeze on my face. I want to close my eyes and smell fresh blooming lilacs and the sun warmed earth. Look at this picture, close you eyes, and imagine it. What is your summer dream? What would you design as the perfect summer spot to relax?

    Research has shown that having plants in one’s home, office, or school increases productivity and decreases stress. Succulent plants in particular have many added benefits. Many succulents are edible and provide herbal remedies for ailments like minor cuts and burns and sour stomach. Besides the health benefits, plants make any room feel fresh and cozy. Check out this University of California site on how to build your own vertical succulent garden for your home or yard.
