Update on the sketchbook I made (in last post)...I am taking it over and keeping it for myself!!! I could not let it go after making it! LOLOL! I have discovered that the brown paper bag paper loves gel pen ink! WOW! It soaks it up. Of course, I am probably the last person on earth to discover that!!!
Here are 3 cactus that are showing some new things. First, my Bunny Ear Cactus has some new bunny ears! It happened seemingly overnight...looked out the kitchen window, and BAM, there they were! There are others also protruding now, but these two are the cutest!
Here is continuing new growth on my Mammillaria. I have been surprised by this particular cactus over the years...it has had soggy looking days in the past, where I just knew it would die of rot, but it has continued to thrive! Probably because of our last 3 years of drought.
This is the same Mammillaria, and a new set of blossoms completely encircling the end. It is rare for me to ever catch the blooms all the way around. (I don't watch closely enough, generally). This one has been blooming all spring, and it seems like a sort of second wind for it.
And a couple of shots of succulents...all Kalenchoe varieties with their little leaflets all along the leaf edges or ends.
And one without leaflets, but a blue-green fuzzy little bugger with chocolate leaf edges...oh so adorable!
Have a Happy Cactus Monday everyone!!!
