It was the middle of June, and ...

I was planing on posting this earlier in June, but my life has been busy taking care of the injured.  One thing I have learned about taking care of the injured, she is always needing something and very demanding.

Sometime in June I went to a plant sale at "Plantasia Cactus Gardens" in Twin Falls, ID.  Thought I would share a few pics.



  1. Nice visit, thanks for posting. What's the big barrel cactus? I'm surprised it's hardy there.

  2. I think it might be Ferocactus acanthodes. He covers it with clear visqueen plastic during the winter, but does not cover it until after Thanks giving. He does the same thing I do with my Echinocactus polycephalus. He also covers his E. polycephalus, like I do mine. That is not to say that barrel is not extremely hardy. I have tried many (covered) and I only had one that was hardy through the winter, it's cover broke and died one winter. He has had that barrel for over 12 years that I know of.
