Cactus and Succulent Seek and Find

Here is what months of neglect gets ya! I went out this morning and pulled out most of the weeds, but the Mother Of Millions/Thousands have taken over!!! They are such trashy little monsters, but yet they are so cute and endearing! I really don't mind them being long as I can keep them thinned out a bit.

If you look real close you can pick out and find all my other cute babies...the ones that should be showcased...ah well...

Some tomato action still going on as of this morning:

A few eggplants that remain after a little Emily girl came out and ripped 4 off the bush for Grandma Julie! LOL. Luckily 2 of them were nearly full sized!!!

I love how these jelly bean-like succulents turn red in the full sun!

It is raining out now. I am about to wake my daughter and we will go over to Moms to begin a long cleaning out process... On a good note, my cousin called and she can come in a few weeks to help with that! God bless her!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!!
xoxo- Julie P.S. Next post I will show you a really neat toy bag I made for my grandsons Legos. Mom had helped with the design :)

Your mother of millions is certainly prolific Julie, they have been declared a noxious weed here in Qld. Your vegetables always look inviting must be the green fingers.
