Love the new posts!  Keep them coming.  Thanks for the nice comments on my little broken pot thingie, I appreciate it.  I'm surprised the plants are as happy as they are.  Let us know if you do one too, Lyn. 

Love your new pics, Beth.  So neat.  Like Mary suggested the one cactus is definitely a Mammilaria and a very nice one at that.  The blue-leaf succulents are Echeverias and they're super charming.  Congrats on the blooms on them.  You're obviously growing them very well.  I love how you're displaying them too.  Great stuff!   Happy gardening everyone!  Take care, Grant

Beth,

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....

Thanks, Mo, I appreciate it.  I arranged the little "pot" to be angled to make sure water runs out of it quickly.  The little plants seems very happy with it. 

We would love to see your pics too.  Good luck with them.  Usually I download pics from my camera to my computer, and then use the picture image above where I'm typing right now, to browse/search for the picture on my computer, and then select it.  Good luck.

In the meantime, here is an Astrophytum capricorne flower bud full of promise.  Happy gardening everyone!

Fun updates all, keep them coming.  Looking forward to your pics, Freddy.  Thanks for the nice words on the agave/Euphorbia, John, I appreciate it.

Just for fun, here's a pic of a small pot I've been enjoying this week.  It's an old broken terracotta pot that I planted with some succulent Euphorbias three years ago.  Each was a single rooted stem and they've actually grown quite a bit.  I know, I know, it's sort of tacky, but it's sort of fun too, and who doesn't enjoy looking at nice, happily growing succulents, right??  Wilson the tennis ball included to show relative size.  

I hope you'll take a quick look and enjoy.  These get morning sun and afternoon shade, and water maybe once every day days.  Keep your pics and updates coming too!  Happy gardening!
