"You 'BECOME' the horse said to the rabbit. 'It doesn't happen all at once. It takes a very long time. Generally by the time you are REAL most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But those things don't matter, because you are real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.' " >>> The Velvateen Rabbit

My Toad cactus (Star cactus)
This was the first bloom before I moved it out onto the front porch. I don't think it liked the heat but it was my only option as it is in the shade at least. Poor plant is used to 76 degrees in the house and its been in high 90's this week. Glad it is about done blooming. It really smells up the porch and attracts these really big flies.
As you can see in this close up picture. I feel privledged to have such an unusual plant and enjoy tending them and watching them grow big. Have a couple other unusual plants I will mention later.
Been getting stuff ready to do my first craft show later this month. Will post some pictures about that.
