We went today to the SFO Flower and Garden Show and as always finding amazing display from the company Succulent Gardens. This year they made this huge globe. I like the way they have grouped the succulents to define the various continents.

And this one is a display called Great Walls of China made by UC Berkeley. The succulents are still in their respective pots but are inside a cardboard sleeve lying down.

It is nice to see with the lighting effects:

That is really cool Tarev. I used to love going to the SF show, such incredible displays. Did the globe turn as well? It looks like it does.

Patience and vision, in abundance.
