I know you will be horrified but I actually dislike succulent gardens.

Now this is a place I would have to visit if I was there. I was just at our botanical garden yesterday and all the blooming was amazing.

Gorgeous green succulents -- love both the overall view and the close up of that one (which does not look at all familiar). We've spent some time in Arizona and there are a couple of excellent desert museums with various types of cacti and other succulents. We learned quite a few of the names and grew to appreciate their different kind of beauty.
