The cactus with the pink flower is Mammillaria spinosissima. Its common name is "Red headed Irishman" cactus for obvious reasons.

Grant, after looking at you pic of the broken terracotta pot, I spotted a similar idea in a maggo. It is a pot (of any description) laid on its side, with soil in it. Then a row of Eceverias planted in a huge long winding row, coming out of the pot and weaving across the garden in snake style!
There are just so many clever ideas around.
By the way I went back to Hardware store yesterday and purchased 20 of the terracotta pots. There goes
my pocket money! Too good a bargain to let go at only $1 each and will never go astray in my garden....

thanks Grant...I figured you could help me out.  I'll post more at the pink one starts blooming.

I'm not sure about the succulents, but the cactus appears to be a Mammallaria. Grant, John, and Freddy (and others will be able to ID them for you. I love your gourds, too! ;-)

I don't know the names of any of the cacti I posted below.  The two small ones in the little hanging basket are both blooming. The one on the left has a stalk coming out and the flowers looks like it will be pink.  The other is yellow. Cute little things.

Grant, I love the broken terracotta pots in your arrangements! I saw them at new hardware store last week for $1 each and was so tempted to buy a heap mainly for my bulbs. But at that price I could afford to break them and do some succulent arrangements, as yours look brilliant! Thanks for the idea....
