These are plants in a friends garden...I'll be interested to see how they are doing next spring.

It looks like they are all planted among rocks, I'd love to see an 'overview'.

They are planted in a long narrow bed that is difficult to get a good overview of. The bed contains rocks and driftwood and is very attractive but the soil is covered with moss so I am concerned if it is really a healthy growing condition because of poor drainage. There were two opuntia that had collapsed ...probably, I think, because of rot in roots from to much moisture.

Those are beautiful. A couple of them look like spikey octopus!
