Cactus Monday

This time I did a little work in my succulent garden before taking photos for the blog. Last year referred to this little stretch of my garden as my pathetic succulent garden. It does get kinda sad looking during the winter.

Last time I posted a photo of my Jade tree people got excited! LOL This is one of the first plants I bought after moving to Florida in 2001. I just realized that it is starting to get a bit leggy but I still like it!

My zig zag plant is growing like crazy. It's actually snuck through a lattice in the jasmine arbor and I can't get it out without bodily injury, LOL.

My Christmas cactus is creating buds so I guess it's a late Easter cactus instead!

Your Jade looks so great all full and big. I know you hate to trim any leggy peices off and start some new plants. It would be hard to do! It looks wonderful like this!!!

Love your LONG strands of zigzag cactus! It sure likes to do these long long runners, doesn't it???

Neat timing for a Christmas/Easter cactus to bloom!!!

I missed this post somehow. I love your cactus garden(-: I have a zig zag plant too and its just a little one but I hope it grows big! It is really cool. It grows like hairs on it is that roots? I wondered what to do with those?
