I'm the owner of a cactus that only grows in height and never makes lateral shoots; at times he grows too tall and breaks off and everything starts again from scratch; a Sisyphus story, as it were,
I chopped my beloved cactus in three pieces; the other two parts also come in the pot, but I've read - in my favorite cactus book - that it is better for them to dry for a while...
... so there will be a sequel soon :)

I worked a bit in the 'garden' this past weekend; the agave needed another jar, so this was the perfect moment to put the shoots in separate pots. I wonder if they're going to survive, cause I've removed the greater part of their huge roots. We'll see
The piece of cardboard below is a tribute to the very windy, cold en wet month of May,
However, it was warm & sunny today :^)

it's nice to go in time every now and then to see how the plants have evolved; especially with cacti and succulents I always have the feeling that there's really no movement in their growth...
but that is not true!
The photo above was taken in April 2012; I just had bought a sedum, but it ended between the bicycle weel during my trip home from the flower shop
... the ugly duckling today :)
