    I was contacted by a local home owner about removing a couple of catcus plants from a front enterance way. I had them out in short order and here's the first one replanted along side my driveway, leaning a bit from it's original stance.

    Cheers, Barrie.

    Nice one Barrie do you know what it is? Looks a bit like an Opuntia to me anyway...

    Ed ... it matches another exaple I have, Opuntia phaecantha 'Petra'.
    OT ~ How'd that bird of paradise finally do, the young one about to flower?

    Cheers, Barrie.

    Yes forgot about that, yes it has flowered already and heaps of offsets at the moment cause we are in Spring. I'll try and post another pic but I am busy this week...
