Did I mention my red cactus an my yellow cactus lately?
The are in the kitchen on the window sills when the weather permits.
So cute how they stay the same color all year around.
Anyone else grow them?/ Either walmart of Lowes specials.

Enjoy.

It's from the Bible, Luke 23:46. Also somewhere in Mark I think.

You must have a different version on luke 23/46

Mine says Father Into my hands I commend my spirit..

Were all different I suppose.

I read the King James version

And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost

Heavens no, do not toss them, Barb. They are beautiful. Plus after 15 years they are sorta like part of your house, so you cannot get rid of them....

I was outside today but forgot to get a cutting. I'll do it tomorrow.

I have some type of cactus living outside and it lives through summer and winter in the same spot. Those cute ones with the pretty colors didn't do well for me. I think I over watered. I had them on my screened in porch so maybe they didn't get enough sun. I don't know.

and dodge, you are anything but simple!!!!!!

It's raining AGAIN so I'll get a picture of the cactus tomorrow. And do my forsythia cutting tomorrow. Should have done it yesterday while the sun was shining.

As far as cactus, I didn't realize a perennial would live through freezing weather.
