I also have a potting bench and comfortable stool in the greenhouse, and all the above, with Classic FM on the radio, a large glass of Scotland's finest to hand and Mrs T glugging Bristol Cream back in the house, combine to make for a quite relaxing retirement.

Thanks Paul and by the way, if you find Copiapoas boring, get ready for a deep, relaxing sleep....

That's a very fine collection, Peter! It must be quite a job to look after everything, retirement does have its merits!

Very nice Peter, but you could do with a bit of variation in there, perhaps I'll have to send you a few decent plants over :lol:

That's a very impressive collection and a lovely big greenhouse. You are very lucky to have the space to have such a large one and a bottle of Scotch and a stool, what more could anyone want? There's plenty of variety, too. What is the curious cristate plant in picture three, it looks more like a cristate teddy bear than a plant? Is it the same as the cristate in picture eleven>
Obsessive Crassulaceae lover but also grow, Aloes, Agaves, Haworthias and a select number of Cacti

That's true but they seem to be spiky ones.
