Oh my gosh. It was SO worth the trip. K&L Cactus consists of two enormous greenhouses positively bursting with incredible plants. K&L's proprietor, Lorraine (pictured below in one of her greenhouses; I'm the one on the right), is not only a very kind, interesting, and cool person, but is stunningly knowledgeable about succulents and cacti. She talked patiently with me as I peppered her with questions and wandered slowly through her beautiful greenhouses.
I spent so long in the greenhouses that my girlfriend eventually retreated to the car with the dog and played games on her iPhone (talk about a good sport...). But before she did, she unleashed her formidable photography skills on K&L. The pictures in this post were all taken by her. Enjoy the eye candy!
