Hi Joy,
The baseball cactus has not flowered. I have had it for a year. Last winter I brought it inside because I was afraid it would freeze but I don't think it would have. It's my "baby" so I had to take extra special care(-:
I love how it is so round like a baseball.(-:

Hi Lisa,
HCM to you and thank for stopping by!!!! I had not seen the baseball cactus before either and saw one last year online and knew I had to have one(-: I got it on eBay(-:

I must agree with everyone else that Baseball Cactus is amazing. So round and different.
I'm gonna have to check into Cactus Monday as I have all kinds of semps and sedums. But I don't have and Cactus. I'll go see what all it involves.
Love your pink Daylily too!

The basrball cactus looks like it was made from fabric. Similar to the pattern for making fabric pumpkins in the fall. I wasn't evn sure, at first, if it was real.LOL

I love all the containers! Great ideas! I've really got to get myself some succulents for my patio. I've been inspired lately by all the bloggers who are posting about them. -Jackie

Very creative and I'm going to copy it tomorrow. I just bought three succulents this weekend. One is cobweb hens and chicks. I think you have that one.

Kathleen said...

omg, these containers are great, you are one clever girl! I would baby that baseball cactus too. I hope it blooms for you so you can show it to us. I've never seen one before either. It's very cool.
