Todays photos, continuing in the succulent theme of the week, are from Jane Johnson in Laguna Hills, California. She says, "Sherman Library & Gardens was founded in 1980 in Corona del Mar, California, and has a delightful succulent garden. Here are some shots that illustrate the design, variation, and interest that such a garden can possess. My husband took these photos last weekend when we discovered the gardens (2 1/2 amazing acres of what, for me, is a teaching garden). We just moved to southern California from central Pennsylvania, and we have to learn to garden all over again. I'm a master gardener and passionate plant nut. No matter how experienced we are, there are always new lessons and opportunities for growth in gardening.....hooray for that! " Thanks, Jane, for sharing this garden with us!

It'd be great to finish off the week with some photos of succulents from your gardens! Send me some photos today, and I'll try to continue this theme for tomorrow.
