I've been to Watson's and Windmill nurseries looking for a couple of succulents to plant in them. Here's what I came up with.
|I actually bought this blue cactus from the Dig Nursery booth at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show.|
I don't know for sure but I think the blue cactus is some kind of Pilocereus.
|Minnie got a Madagascar Palm aka Pachypodium -- I thought her top ring of leaves looked kind of like hair|
They're living for now in the upstairs guest bathroom. There's no room out in the greenhouse.
|The blue cactus was planted kind of low in the pot, I thought, so I planted it up a bit higher. I hope that works out, even if it does look a bit gross. I was afraid of it rotting, planted so low.|
|The top of the cactus also looks kind of hairy|
|Minnie is prickly too|
Through a series of mishaps and miscommunication we actually ended up with a second set of Mickey and Minnie Mouse mugs (for free, courtesy of The Walt Disney Corp.) So I planted them up too.

|The tag on this just said "Cactus." I like the striations on it.|
|This is Aloe imalotensis. It has some nice stress coloring on it.|
|They keep me company behind the kitchen sink.|
