The colors on this small barrel cactus are really dramatic~
I love the flower-within-a-flower on this tall flowering cactus~I just planted these cactus in April 2009, so to see them doing so well is inspiring. I must not be too bad at gardening :)
Also on Saturday, I went to a local art fair hosted by the Central Arizona College. I brought along some of my favorite ceramic pieces to show. Unexpectedly, a local store-owner in town commissioned me to make several sets of cactus salt and pepper shakers and a couple of large saguaro cactus for them. So it turned out to be a wonderful bloomin' cactus kind of day!
