My Cactus Collection.

I have internet! Woohoo! It was a long old weekend without it :p

I thought today, seeing as my whole life is still in boxes/between houses (today I had to walk to work in an oversized cardigan and leggings as I left all my clothes in the old house :'( ) I would share with you one of the loves in my life - my Cactus/Cacti collection! 

I love them! They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes - I even have a tattoo of a Catctus on my leg (you can see it at the bottom of the post or HERE) I've been learning alot about them and how to take care of them and what the different types are called. I found an awesome book on them in a charity shop which has been really useful.

 So, here they are:

When this one bloomed I almost wept with joy!
I stuck a birds skull that I had cleaned up in this one to give it that old desert feel.

Heres my a picture of my tattoo from right when I had it done, the colour has come out alot better since it's healed:

And for added house-plant greatness - my Venus Flytrap!

Do you like plants? What if your favourite type?

  1. Oooh I think I need to get a venus flytrap.. My grandpa had one when I was little and I used to have great fun sticking things in it to make it close up. I do a like a boring spider plant actually... it seems to be the only kind of plant that I can look after.

  11. That's an awesome collection! I really need to get some more plants too. The problem is that one of my cats tries to eat all plants he can reach.

  13. What a great little collection. I've been really wanting to start one myself. Growing up in the desert I was surrounded by them, but now I live no where near any, sadness. But your little collection is definitely the little push I need to finally start my own!

  14. My fella and I joke that we have black fingers not green - every plant that comes into our house dies a horrible death. Even the two cacti I owned as a teenager perished and as you probably know it takes a lot to kill them!

  15. I ADORE your terrarium so much Stef! And all your cactus are so cute! I really like plants and cactus are definitely some of my favourites but I don't know much about them though... My mom has two tiny terrariums with cactus too, I need to send some photos of them to you! xxx
