Birthday Pot

This past July my twin brother and I had one of the 'big' birthdays. The kind where you look down at your written age and shake your head in disbelief! To mark the occasion my brother surprised me with this beautiful pot. When he told me he made it I was even more impressed.

The heat in Texas this August has been pounding down on us like the fury of satan. I noticed that the plants showing no sign of pain were my potted succulents and cacti. As my pot sat empty I decided I wanted to pot something in it that would add to my healthy assortment. What better plant to plant than a cactus! I found this 'Ming Thing' (Cereus forbessi monstrose) on sale and knew it would be perfect. I was glad to be able to add my brother's gift to my blossoming collection of potted beauties!

This blog is not dead!

Sorry it has been awhile since I've posted anything. It is August and HOT! These days all I am doing is keeping things from dying. There have been very few 'Kodak moments!' Look for new posts soon, as the weather gets cooler. Can October get here fast enough?!?
