Enjoying all the pictures and posts here.

Trying to get caught up.

I also very much enjoy lizards, but don't see any in the middle of this city of 60,000.  No amphibians or snakes either.  I've often thought of importing some to help my garden along.

Dallas,

Love the lizard!  I've seen a couple around here.  Very rare here.  We do have frogs, toads, snakes.  Our insect-eating friends.

Dallas cereus with yellow spination are very difficult to identify.there are so many arround. Spineless green one on the back with white ribs  stenocereus marginatus is a grand cactus. One of my favourites, a plant I wish to have in my collection.

And here's another cactus that nursery had, but I thought it was too expensive so I didn't get it. This one looks familiar, but I don't know the name.

I had a little visitor outside my door today. This little guy or gal was about 6" long. We have a lot of little brown lizards about an inch in length, and kind of stripped in a way, but I've never seen a green one around here.

Also, I passed a nursery today near my grandmother's house, and they had these planted outside. The first is some sort of cholla cactus, though I don't recall seeing any for sale around here. This was planted in an upright, shallow, but broad planter and it was kind of spilling over the edge. It was nice looking. They also had some huge agave outside, too. I just love these so much. Such stunning plants. 

Also, I've been meaning to post these pics I took at another nursery some time ago. Just really neat plants I thought, but they were unlabeled. The first one looks wicked, I think. Reminds me of the hair on those little troll dolls. The other is some sort of curly plant, and the last one is called a Mexican Grass Tree. It was huge, though the picture is deceptive.

Beekeeping donkey.

Technically, a beekeeping donkey probably doesn't count as gardening.  But maybe it does.

Amer, you are right, the epiphyllum is very fragrant.  The segments are also very easy to root.  I just let them dry for a day then insert them into potting soil and water only when it dries out.

Sentient night blooms are usualy vibrantly fragrant. Is your Epiphlum flower fragrant?
