This is my small collection of cacti and one aloe vera plant. Sadly, I almost killed the aloe vera last summer. I had a huge pot full of aloe vera that were falling out of the pot. I divided them up, gave some away to friends and repotted a few in the pot you see in the center of the photo. Then, I sat it out in the garden where it got too much rain and too much wind. Some died and the remaining ones looked sad. I rescued them from the yard last fall and they seem to be fine now. It's just so small compared to what I had. The cacti were given to me by a friend at work. I have no idea what varieties they are. They were all together in a little "desert" pot display. I separated them and the two on the left side of the photo are actually new starts because the original cacti got way to large for me to keep in nice little clay pots. They're all ready for some heat and some sunshine on our back patio. But, not yet!
