I rescued some cactus and succulents from WG the last few days AFTER I told my self NO more plants for inside!! Well darn they were 1.29 and needed me!! So I had to get some. 3x now.  2 different Barrols too but pics tomorrow.. They were not taged so I have NO idea what they are..  So one at a time..

ONE. Echeveria sp. or a Graptopetalum sp. ??  

Two: Twisted cactus like form.. lol.. Fake flower, HOW to remove??

Three: Lithops.. Bromfieldii I think. but menellii, maybe..

Here are a couple of plants I have that I don't have names for. If anyone knows the names of these I would really appreciate it.

Gorgeous blooms Mary. I'm sorry the squirrels chewed on your Lithop. I have the same problem with squirrels here. I have to keep all of my cacti and succulents in planters on tables that the squirrels can't climb up on or they would eat them all.

Oooh, love your Curly Locks Grant! I can't wait for mine to get that big. I planted 100 seeds so here's hoping that at least some of them make it to maturity. Here's an updated picture of my Curly Locks seedlings.

Thank you Nancy.

Boy, those squirrels do a lot of damage. I would have to figure out some way to get the better of them, instead of the other way around. Love you pictures, Mary. The Echinopsis subdenudata flowers are just beautiful!

Here's a picture of a little Acnthocalycium glaucum with a nice flower bud. Then here's picture of the A. glaucum after the squirrel knocked it off the deck to the ground!

Here's a pic of my purple split rock--After the squirrel decided it wasn't all that good! (I guess it's not enough that they are taking bites out of alll the tomatoes in the area! And no, they aren't looking for water-we have 2 birdbaths that are filled and refilled everyday.)

Here are pics of my Echinopsis blooming last week. there were 6 flower buds, and 2 flowers bloomed first then the other four. When I went out to take pictures in the early a.m., there were honeybees all over them! I took a bazillion pictures, but I will only post a couple/few! ;-D (Those bees were so covered with pollen, and their pollen sacs were exploding, they were so full! OK, maybe not exploding. ;-D They didn't seem to mind me snapping their pictures either.)
