A Sea of Cacti

For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you might know that I have a very, very long list of things that I want to see in and around the Los Angeles area. Trekking out to Palm Springs to see Moorten's Botanical Garden has been at the top of that list for quite some time and last weekend I was able to check it off! While the garden isn't very big, it is jam packed with cacti from different regions (over 3,000 to be more specific!), which makes it well worth the visit!

As always, I dressed to match the occasion, which included wearing my Doops Designs cactus skirt. (What else would one wear to visit a cactus garden?) I also wore my new satin turban knot headband with this outfit. I thought it would be the perfect accessory for spending some time exploring palm springs because it seems very retro and chic! I like to think that I brought some color to these botanical gardens with this ensemble!

One of the most stunning parts of the garden, not to mention the most Instagramable, is the greenhouse. The greenhouse is where many rare and unique species of cacti are housed. While it makes for some lovely pictures, I would offer a word of warning: the greenhouse is very tight and if you're not careful you just might end up with cactus needles somewhere you don't want them, so watch out! Overall, a visit to Moorten's Garden is well worth the risk of getting pricked by a cactus, so I would highly recommend dropping in for a visit if you're in the Palm Springs area!

  1. I love cactuses- they are hands down my favorite house plants! Your skirt was perfect for a day out in the garden and love how it brought it out to life with all the beautiful colors.
