Here's another project inspired by the challenges at Mary Organizes.
These little cactus have been sitting in their cell pack for waaaaaaay too long. In fact, I lost a few because of the neglect. -sigh- So I gave myself a kick and got busy. I had bought an old set of tongs just to handle cactus with. Using those and a LOT of care, I was able to get them planted without a single sticker lodging itself in me.
Once planted I covered the soil with tiny river pebbles. Then I picked through my 'pretty rocks' and scattered a few about.
Isn't this a great rock? It is some sort of fossil (can't remember where we found it). It looks like a little barrel cactus to me.
I'm really happy how it turned out. And it will look nice in the house during the winter months too.
