My New Obsession

I haven’t felt this giddy since my obsession with succulents began two years ago! What could possibly excite me as much as succulents? Blackberries, raspberries, dewberries… mixed with flowers. They’re popping up everywhere and I’m in love…

When I first began seeing these berries in bouquets, I pictured the designers out picking them as needed from a personal garden. Then I spotted this photo from the San Francisco Flower Mart on Facebook…

…ah-ha!

What do you think of these berries? This by no means puts an end to my love of succulents…in fact, notice how some of the berries are paired with succulents…perfect…

Happy Thursday!
