Potted cactus and ATC storage
I wanted to show my new cactus, sent all the way from Texas...all potted up in their new homes on my kitchen windowsill! They will get a watchful eye and a little extra moisture here and there to get their roots going and then move to their outdoor tire garden, where (I hope) they will live out their long, long lives! I didn't tell you, Claude, but it was such a surprise that you sent me a peice of cleistocactus winterii. I had been wanting this same plant, and didn't know the name, and it seemed like a bit of the universe in action when it just arrived at my door like that!!! WOW! It kinda gives you the chills!!!
Below is my modest little red notebook where I store all my ATC's in baseball card pages. My local trading card/book store is 1 block from my house and they sell the trading card sleeve pages...each page holds 9 ATC's perfectly. I like to sit and look through them all whenever I add in a new one...like this page that holds cards from the my blogger friends in the Netherlands, England, and California!
Just for kicks, I counted all my cards and I currently have 64 ATC's! Such fun!
