It was the first time I'd seen a botanic garden with mostly succulents. I loved wandering around the paths of endless yuccas, agaves and opuntias (prickly pear). The prickly pears were especially fun because they are prone to dissociating, so each segment was labeled with the number.
Below are some images of the succulents, the signage as hand painted tiles, some cute mini-scarecrows, and of course ferns and cycads. You can click on the images to bring up a slideshow with larger images.
