Thanks to all who entered this month.

I liked Chris’s flower buds, and the new Lithops leaf pairs from Liz, Ian and Rod (especially Rod’s L. dorotheae. Liz’s Gasteria glomerata also caught the eye, but the winner is Liz’s Agave ‘Clive’s Special’. The teeth and the teeth indentation are very picturesque, and the lighting makes the whole picture stand out.

So congratulations, Liz, and over to you for March.

Thank you Mike for picking that wonderful Agave, as winner. I am looking forward to seeing it develop over the coming year. I am looking forward to watering all my collection, they look so dry at the moment and are begging for a drink. Given the snow that has been falling today, I have to stop myself watering. So, this leads me to this month's subject. 'Desperately dry plants' a good opportunity to get some interesting and unusual pictures of plants into the competition.
Obsessive Crassulaceae lover but also grow, Aloes, Agaves, Haworthias and a select number of Cacti
