Prickly Pear Cactus
Sacramento Street, Berkeley
Out front of Moxy Beer Garden. They’re new!

Telegragh Ave., Oakland, CA
You never know where you’ll find a few succulents hanging out. These succulents are in Oakland, which is not too surprising. And in the Temescal neighborhood, which makes sense and all. But as a hanging basket of Crassula and Sedum in front of an outdoor seating area at a pizza joint? Shocking!
Just go to shows you can find succulents anywhere these days.
4th Street, Berkeley
Delospermas in bloom
OK, so this isn’t just any Succulent garden in Berkeley, it’s the front bed in front of the store. Our address? It’s on Fourth Street. So there. Prove me wrong!
The Delosperma “Fire Spinner” is in bloom in the lovely Urban Farmgirls trough. The plants are so very green. The flower is practically too colorful.
Ron and Doris are growing a stapeliad outside, and successfully, too! Semi-hardy in the Bay Area, it’s planted under the protection of a larger cactus.
These are some of the prettiest of the carrion flowers, and not too smelly especially when they are successfully blooming outside in the garden. You might find some beetles come find these flowers, but everyone loves them some beetles. And more blooms coming!
And here’s a bonus Echinopsis fruit from their garden. If those seeds drop….
Agave americana on San Pablo Ave. at night.
And here’s the google maps streetview version during the day.
And a bonus Asclepias!
Just off San Pablo Ave. Aeonium atropurpureum and Aloe ciliaris, together in one tidy planter. At least until the Aloe starts climbing 4 or 5 feet up the window.
