Patterns of Spines

If you think seing Cacti from a distance is beautiful, just wait to you get up close.

I used to have a big garden, most of my plants were perennials and local plants.
It was easy to take care of those plants. I never had to cancel any travel plans because of them.
My way of gardening!

But then I had to live in an apartment.
At the beginning I had not intention of being tied up to any easy or needy indoor plant.

But the gardener inside me started to miss getting her hands in the dirt, 
watching plants grow and simply just taking care of green living things was not only a want, but a need.

The first time these plants caught my attention was at a fashion blogger's office. 
That lady travels a lot, but her little plants were alive! Cacti are very easy to take care of.
And is it just me, or 2013 was the year of the succulent?

I didn't want to be left out, so I bought me some of these babies.
Here is how they looked like when I got them.

The tallest cacti of all of them, is this last one, only a little bit more than 2 1/2 inches!
