Happy Cactus Monday!


Happy cactus Monday all!  I have been inspired by this cactus now since i first saw Lisa's version at Flying Colors. It was so beautiful, that I ran out and bought one. I was reminded of my childhood, where I had one on my windowsill in my bedroom. Now I have another, only its on my windowsill in my kitchen. When the exchange rate for the USA dollar is better for me here in Australia, I am going to buy that painting of Lisa's...and thats a promise! (if I am lucky and its not sold) Oh, and by the way... I actually DID have a cactus Monday....and glad its over...

Oh I am so honored with this post! I myself had no idea about this cactus and finally found it's name and then it's secret = it's 2 cactis in one...
That is what started the whole concept of my piece
"Luna & Sun Drops"...
These little ones are so fun and easy to care of...
Thank you again and have a wonderful HCM!

I have always liked these little red cactus grafted to the top of another. They look so cheerful. Happy Cactus Monday.

These are very popular in our tourist stores and because they are so pretty and different. Does Australia have any cacti?
