Cactus Monday / Shanghai cactus garden

In Shanghai (last week) I walked past the little cactus garden.
Remember the watermelon cactus from last time?
That specific container was gone, but the love for cacti was still there
and many more cacti and containers to admire.
Ever seen a red colored cactus?
Could it be real..........?
Happy Cactus Monday!


  1. Oh those are beautiful cactus Marianne! I love cactus, from a distance, having been poked more times than i can remember (growing up with a house in Mexico!).
    But i wouldn't mind a nice potted garden like this, so pretty!

    Have a wonderful week dear!
    xoxo lori

  2. Did you say you were in Shanghai??

  3. Marianne.....Du hast Viel Gluck - Shanghai zu besuchen!!!

    The Cacti are gorgeous....I love the red one - and no, I have never seen one in that colour...although I have seen a lilac-coloured one (you painted one once) in the snow in the Taos Mountains....(I did take a photo and will post it one day..)

    I am glad you are home. I missed you....and oh, you lucky one....soon to be visiting two of my favourite people!!!!!
