Cactus Monday and more...

Here it is the start of another week. Time sure flies. It is Cactus Monday again, and of course, I can only show you some photos from my yard this morning (for times sake). When I opened my front door, I saw that the red hibiscus where seeming to float above the bushes...standing up all pretty, and blowing in the wind. I had to get the camera, and from there started around the yard!


A healthy Mammillaria cactus for you...

A freeze damaged Fairy Castle cactus (sadly). I did not notice this damage until some time after the actual freeze. Maybe a week after.

And here is a blurry pic (best one of all) of my neglected triple red hibiscus that grows on the side of the house and never seems to get any attention! I must do better for this little girl! You can see how small it is. I am a bad momma!

Well, hope everyone has a wonderful week! Cheers from sunny south Florida!!!

I can't help but think it must be stunning to see all the plants in your backyard at once.

You are so lucky, it's a painter's plein air paradise!
