This baby Opuntia has been just two pads for two years, but that phase has ended.

It is officially spring in my garden: I have prickly pear growth emerging - and check out the awesomeness of that boulder, too!

The Great Outdoors, in Austin, has planters unlike anything I have seen. They are mixing a variety of Opuntia, Mammillaria, Agave, and other genus in classic way, but are mixing it up by placing some of the specimens in natural, woven orbs.  I didn’t poke around to see exactly how they are doing it, but it has the effect of the old ship in the bottle.  They must be either soaking and stretching the orbs or cutting off the portion around the plant.  Either way, they look quite intriguing!

Fluffy, cold temperature snow is rare in Dallas - so enjoy.

Some new cacti and succulent cuttings I’ve gotten

Sorry I’m just getting to this request. The first one is an Opuntia species and the second is a Schlumbergera. There are so many of both that it would be difficult to know exactly which either is without someone more expert than myself. The third one is …. not my area of expertise. Anyone know?

The middle shot on the last row is Aloe - again, not sure which species. Anyone?

Today we visited Turner Falls Park in Davis, Oklahoma and did some light hiking and climbing. I managed to find a few prickly pears and yucca. One prickly pear pad had fallen from a cliff above and was perched in the branches of a mountain cedar. I’ll post more shots of it in a separate post. I’m not sure on the yucca species either, but I collected some seed.
