Cactus Monday

Since I have been negligent in my Cactus Monday posts I looked for a cactus to draw.  No luck there but when I was writing in my garden diary about the frost the past couple of nights I discovered the page below.  It has a sketch I did of a pot of succulents and a cactus!  The little stringy thing in the front of the pot is what is the cactus in this group.  It is a "Mouse Tail" Rhipsals horrida.  An unusual looking thing. I hope it survives this winter in our house. I actually have it inside the small conservatory in the foryer under lights.  Happy Cactus Monday to all.

I love your sketch - I need to spend more time doing that myself. HCM! I am planning to put together my cactus rhymes and paintings and laminate them and make a little book for my granddaughter.

Great find in your sketches for Cactus Monday!
hahaha 5,5 hours away that my whole country! here it seems so little, in Holland it would take you from the south to the North.
I have no idea where your town is but I tought it was close to teri's as she visited you a while ago, but that was probably on her way to Wisconsin? Must look it up on the map, I will. I would love to meet you too one day!

Happy cactus Monday!

Nice sketch of mouse tail cactus. I don't see that kind of cactus often, but I love how weird it looks. I hope yours does well. Happy Monday!

Oh and we have missed you! Maybe you need to take your cactus family to Arizona for a visit!

What a cute find, a sketch just waiting to get out of that book.

Just right for the CM! I found it really intriguing that you keep a garden diary. For some reason I never have but it's a really neat idea.

Sorry to be late Lisa.
I am even more behind on cactus monday nowadays.
You had found something great to draw.
Great little sketch and happy belated cactus monday.
I can see even though the sketch is simple but you are putting a lot of effort in.
Btway, what is your Christmas wishlist? I hope to be your Santa Clause!
