This is the second year I've gone with my friend Tammy to the Henry Shaw Cactus Society show and sale at the Missouri Botanical Garden. This year it was held from July 25 - August 2. I meant to highlight this great annual event after I went during the first weekend, to encourage everyone to check out the second weekend ... but I got busy and forgot.
Here's what I bought this year -- all of these guys for $19! Not bad, eh?
Lots of great colors and textures. I bought three plants last year - and I've only managed to kill one so far. Yay! I'm feeling very hopeful about this lot.
So far I've only managed to move them from the kitchen counter to the dining room windowsill, but I have great plans for re-potting them in some fabulous way.
