I've been potting some of my cactus from plastic to terra cotta and other pots. Some are hand-thrown ceramic which I got in Phoenix many years ago and I need to find things I like to plant in them. Oh dear...I'm going to have to buy a few more cactus. The first three are pots i bought in Arizona in the late 60's.

The "Arizona" pots are among my "little treasures". I've planted them several times over the years. One time they contained lithops. Wish I had more. I wonder if the pattern on the second pot is the artists signature but I will never know.

Beautiful pots and plants.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
