San Diego Succulents and Sunsets

Hi friends! While I’m still organizing photos from our most recent trip to California and trying to find the best way to share them with you all I settled into the idea of grouping some of the southern coast succulents with San Diego’s sultry sunsets. You may remember Succulents By The Sea in Santa Cruz, California shared last spring when we hung out more so on the northern coast of California with a few days spent in Laguna. This year we situated in San Diego with a nature reserve just outside of our door which led through a diverse natural arrangement of native plant life, sparkling sand dunes, and wild sweet grasses ending at a dog beach. It was a perfect set up for us (and the pup) each morning waking to the soul-stirring scent of gardenia, watching the suns first rays delicately shine on natures landscape, and each evening being witness to the huge golden sun dipping into the Pacific Ocean as if it were melting. As often as I hear how cliché sunsets and flowers are within the photography world I may be met more often with joyous intrigue -for flowers and sunsets are wonders we marvel at whenever gifted the chance. It’s not my style to deny the happiness natures treasures bring to us!San Diego's Nature Reserve. ©Victoria Lise 2018.Purple Succulents Along Southern California Coast. ©Victoria Lise 2018.Succulent Jungle.

“And still after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth, ‘you owe me’. Look what happens with a love like that. It lights up the sky.” Rumi

  1. I’ve been to North Hollywood and San Francisco but I didn’t see anything as memorable as this! I definitely don’t think these photos are cliche, the yellow flowers with the neutral colored background of beige and brown is amazing. And the cactus jungle tells a story!
