The Prince and the Pauper

Home Depot has been carrying a lot of newer and much nicer Cacti & Succulents with the addition of The Cactus Collection. One of the things I picked up was an Echeveria "Black Prince." I had been lusting after this Echeveria for a while and I was pleased to have found it. Today I noticed there is another Echeveria, that look similar to "Black Prince," that is called "Black knight." I wanted to pick it up but they had been suffering from neglect already but the next time I see a fresh shipment in my local Home Depot I will make sure to pick one of those up too.

Christmas comes earlier every year

Both of my Schlumbergias are in bloom now. I bought them last year at Walmart for a dollar after Christmas and they were in really bad shape. They even survived getting sprayed with Febreze that I mistook for a water bottle and have forgiven me by putting on a flower show. One is all white and the other has a red variegation to it.
