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.
