One of my latest discoveries in the Miami area is the wonderful dream world Isaac Farms Nursery in Homestead, FL. I am well aware that the state of Florida is known for farming and agriculture, but my first visit to Homestead and Isaac's was my first venture into farmland that does not mainly consist of tomatoes or cranberries; what Jersey is well known for. My search to find a Florida placeholder for one of my favorite places to shop, Terrain (now part of the new Anthro & Co.) deemed sufficient. Very sufficient!
Cacti and succulents are some of my favorite things in the world. I couldn't be happier to have found this glory of acreage that holds thousands of succulents, pottery, desert roses, air orchids, the list goes on. Let's just say I had to apologize to Zach for the two hour roaming and gawking I did here last Sunday. Not only did Zach join on my venture, but if it were not for Z, I would not have been able to carry the super tall cactus up to our apartment upon our arrival home.
It is almost embarrassing to admit that in my first two visits my take aways included cacti and succulents for a large table centerpiece on the balcony, a few overbearingly sized pots, my first almost seven foot cactus, and multiple straggler pieces for my continued collection. I will be smiling all week. Click here to link over to my cacti centerpiece DIY! xo RCN
