Cactus presents

Post by gerald » Mon Feb 08, 2021 9:29 pm

Sitting around this winter due to covid and lack of allotment/cactus work we've been doing a lot of jigsaws.

So I was delighted to get this 1000 piece puzzle today for my birthday:

Happy birthday and good luck with the jigsaw

Very much on a steep learning curve, just love the huge variety and how different succulents can be from one another.

Thank you everyone

It's 20% done already but I think that's just because we've done the easy bits :wink:

I'll post a pic when complete just to show it can be done, they are addictive but will still take a few days

Dodgy naming on the puzzle? Or an inability to put the pieces in the right places? :lol:
