I'll start with a favorite one, a drool worthy fountain I have admired at a Petaluma, Ca. nursery. Each year I visit, it looks slightly different. I seriously need to find a size appropriate one for my garden and have a go at one for myself!

Here's an old fountain that I spotted in Halfmoon Bay, Ca. along a beach front street. Succulents do so well in coastal communities!

This was my favorite combo bowl, it has since been torn apart and as soon as the weather permits, will be freshened up with new soil and plantings

Here's one I want to try to emulate, I took this shot last week at the California Cactus Center nursery in Pasadena. It's a Monet inspired design and that cobalt blue really makes it pop!

All beautiful and inspiring! Living in Wisconsin I pretty much have to keep my containers small enough to pick up and move for the winter...bummer.

I came across this shot on Flickr, I love his pictures and the way he set up this display for this shot. If you click on the All Sizes option, you can see a full sized detailed version.

And Lali, he even makes reference to a McCoy' pot!

LOL Sue, remember that Hortulus is my guy! Remember the echeveria he has that I so need? I am still on the hunt for this one.
Maybe we will see it tomorrow! Hurray! Oh I will buy 10 of them! LOL

That's probably how I first found his pictures, from that link. I have him tagged so I get update emails when he adds new images and he has me tagged too.
