Friday Seems to be The Day For News Roundups

Have you noticed that my headlines are getting wordier? It may be that I’m getting a little punchy. I usually like very short, abstract headlines. But not right now.

Anyway, on to the fantastic news that I’m rounding up from around the world, to you. You’d be amazed at all the cactus and succulent news I ignore, only blogging the best of the best. (Yes, I know, shocking isn’t it.)

First up is an expensive spa treatment in South Carolina that includes smearing cactus on your face. ABC News reports:

On this weeks Wrinkle Free Wednesday we’re heading to Wisteria Salon and Spa who are doing their part to Go Green (with) a fully Organic Facial…

The ingredients include Argon, from Argon trees… and cactus.

Next up is some news you can use. So the Huntington Garden in SoCal has succulent classes, and if you’re in the area, the collection can’t be beat, so you might want to check it out. I’m just saying.

Aug. 14, 2:30 p.m. “Succulents for the Home Garden,” at the Huntington Gardens, 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, CA 91108, (626) 405.2100.

John Trager, curator of desert collections at The Huntington, will discuss how to bring unexpected beauty, color, and diversity to the home landscape with succulent plants. A plant sale will follow the talk. Free.

But you don’t live in Southern California. You live in Denver, so what’s available for you? Well, Denver’s own Channel 9 News is on the beat:

KUSA – Gardeners love to plant. While lack of rain and high heat have curtailed most planting, one group of plants can still fulfill your creative urges: succulents. These desert plants lend themselves to a project during high summer.

One likely project is to plant a dry land garden in an old strawberry pot.

Now that’s just sensible.

Now for the big news: If you want your own local cactus news updates, then you know, send along those updates to me and I’ll blog them for you. Because that’s just the kind of cactus blogger that I am.
