What did I buy at Gardenworld?

Forgot to mention yesterday what I actually bought. Yes I always say I am not going to buy, but then something catches my eye and I just have to buy it.
They had some lovely garden ornaments turkeys and peacocks were everywhere but I managed to resist the urge to buy and come home with something much smaller.
Three cactii and one Tillandsia or air plant as they are more commonly called.
The rats tall cactus is a lovely red and I already have but this one but in pink and the two smaller cactii one has yellow flowers and the other very pale pink.
The Tillandsia is huge and I also bought the board to glue it on now to find the right spot to hang it.

Cactus garden

Ever been to Gardenworld in Springvale? Well I took my parents there today for lunch and a wander around. The brand new cactus garden is finished and now open to the public. Couldn't resist taking a few pics although I was generally disappointed. For those who remember the old garden it was completely full of cactii with many reaching up as high as the roof and constantly having to be pruned. Somehow this garden seems much smaller and will take many years before it is as big as the old one.

Christmas tshirts

Yes I know Christmas is still some time away but I just couldn't resist making these lovely personalized/monogrammed tshirts.
All the younger nieces and nephews will receive one so this will be my project on the side for the month of October.
