this is a macro pic of my - euphorbia trigona - otherwise known as the african milk tree. it lives in a pot under our pergola. technically, it is not a cactus but a succulent. michelle gave it to me around eight years ago and it was only about three inches in height then.....now, this baby is close to seven feet tall! i LOVE it! i do have to stake it though as it has toppled a few times on strong, windy days. i have noticed that people seem to put a few of them in one pot together which would probably serve to support each other better against winds. on christmas day, i gave michelle a potted cutting from this very plant. to read more about the african milk tree, you can visit this link. to see other pics posted by january photo a day participants, please visit the links in my sidebar.
in the studio - i laid out some supplies ready to make up some decorated journals as i've received a few orders prior to christmas. i'm hoping to get some time to work on them tomorrow. i did buy some nice 3D stickers for the covers but do you think i can find where i put them?! you see, i have a habit of hiding things in a 'safe' place away from aaron but the problem i have is that i often forget where that 'safe' place is. yes, i'm that good when it comes to hiding things. the hilarious part is that aaron is usually the one who ends up finding the missing item for me. LOL
love, light and peace ~
