Jocelyn's fantastic Cacti and Succulent Collection

Today, Ian McMaugh and I visited Jocelyn, in Darkes Forest. She has a stunning collection of cacti and succulents, and a very cute kitty called Pol. It was a beautiful spring day, perfect for a drive in the country. We both bought about a dozen plants and stopped on the way home for a tops bacon and egg roll.

18th August, Sydney Botanical Gardens

 Today a friend and I went to the Botanical Gardens. It was a great time to see a lot of Aloes in flower in the Cacti and Succulent section of the garden. The other FANTASTIC  thing was that all of the flying foxes have been driven out. Im looking forward to the recovery of a lot of trees that have suffered from the Flying Fox occupation
