Good morning dear cacti friends,

I'm so naughty, some pictures out of order.
Wonderful weather, 5th May bathing day!


Others also bathe. . .

You do have quite an extensive collection of nice succulents and cacti. Two plants stood out for me. One is the big Pelecyphora asseliformis and the other one image 48778. Is that a Euphorbia sp. by any chance? :)

Good evening Harald,

thank you for your friendly comments! :oops:
That Euphorbia should be E.horrida.

If like plants like that, here is an Euphorbia polygona in full flowers,

That small Pelecyphora is a little early with flowering, the rest of it´s family is in "stand by". . . :wink:

I'm stunned! OMG how big is your GH? A question please: what is the lovely white spiky critter in pic 48144, to the right of the steno? I want one!! And probably don't have room. Sue

Oh, you really have a beautiful collection of cacti to show us. All that flowering is mind boggling. That collection of Stenocactus crispatus is amazing too, especially that plant with those extremely long spines (image 48153).

Thank you - got to find a source for that! One plant, clumping? I wonder how old it is. Sue
