Just love those Aeoniums
Continuing a journey of discovery as I grow cactus seeds and offsets, and discover all kinds of wonderful plants in Cactus Nurseries. Just love Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums and Gymnocalycium .... and....and .... now discovering Rebutia (thought I'd never bother having lost one a winter ago) and Sulcorebutia and Aylostera .... from where did those Echinocereus plants arrive?

Having taken some new photos for an earlier post, I've finally made the time to go through some older photos. I do like Crassulaceae, so there were a few pictures waiting for review. Here are a selection:

Many thanks to all the contributors for the December competition. Lots of nice photos to choose from, and I had a difficult choice between MikeT's last minute selection - some fine photos there! (But I think the 12th photo is a Dudleya brittonii maybe? Not Graptopetalum) and Juster's equally lovely pics.

In the end I have chosen Juster's contribution - it was a close run thing! (And she knows I covet her beautiful Dudleya!)

So, over to you, Juster for the January competition!
