Yesterday, we were at Monterey, CA..in previous years we went there, I have not been taking photos of plants. This time around..got to appreciate more the succulents Big Grin Minimalistic arrangements or in containers that makes it more eye-popping.

Nearing Monterey as we pass through Sand City..more low growing succulents and drought tolerant plants growing on the drifting sand dunes:

Impressive old Jade plants...very fat stems! Really shows it does not need deep area to grow. Though the leaves look small..I wonder if it is too much cold.
