I imagine your rock art as a necklace for the cacti. Please send us a photo when it is blooming. You really captured the spirit of it all. Way to go! Are you near the Frio? Such a beautiful area of Texas.

Okay.  The "blue spikey thing".  I thought it was a type of aloe vera.  Somebody said agave?  You need to edumacate us northerners!   This is beautiful.

I love, love, love using rock. Your yard looks terrific!

Thank you. I will have to look into growing it as a houseplant and maybe planting it with my other cacti during the growing season.

the blue spikey thing is maguey, a type of agave.

That blue spiky thing looks like a 'century' cactus - what we call them around here.  They get big but do grow slowly and well worth it given the space and out of harm's way, a beautiful cactus - never put them where children play....they are sharp and can be harmful.

I love rocks in the garden and I like the way you have arranged these.  Will you post a pic once you have moved them?  They look so pretty here so I look forward to seeing what they will loook like in the new location.

Beautiful - what is the blue spikey thing? I am in Wisconsin and we have nothing even close to that but I would love to have one. I do have 2 varieties of hardy prickly pear cactus though in my rock garden and no one believes me when I tell them they make it through our winters, as along as the rabbits don't get to them. I have learned to cover them with chicken wire over the winter to help keep them away.

View From the Front Door

"Thank you, Keryn. Our street (and the whole town) does have lots of lovely big old tall trees. Our commute to and from NYC to work is about 90 minutes each way, but it's a price we are willing to pay to live here."
