Happy Cactus Monday.

After the hail came and damaged some of my succulents about 2 weeks ago, I decided to give them some attention. There was not much I can do except remove the mushy leaves where I can. The Portulacaria has lost some leaves but not too many. The pot will look better when the Portulacaria grows a little taller and the sedum fills up the bottom section of the pot. My plant is only little. The Portulacaria can grow really big (5 feet) and be used as a screen.

“See no evil” teddy bear does not usually live next to the pot… Just me having a bit of fun…

I got quite carried away with my camera and decided to zoom in onto the sedum…

I absolutely love cactus and succulents. I however do not know much about them as far as caring for them. Anything exotic I love. Thanks by the way for your kind comment on my blog.

Oooo I love the way the agaves have that mirrored image on their leaves from when they unfold. HCM. I hope your garden soon recovers from the hail damage. It is so discouraging to have your plants all beat up.
