They’re not really muffins, they’re cupcakes. But I like the title Cactus Muffins better than Cactus Cupcakes.

Photo taken from Amy Sedaris’ instagram feed, for some reason, though I suspect she did not make these nor even photograph them. That’s my guess! I could be wrong!

That’s a lot of Anigozanthos in that front yard alongside a blue Agave. They sure do bloom a lot. Ironically I just got back from Australia and didn’t see any in bloom there. Just here in Berkeley.

I’ve been out of touch but here you go with some nice South African Ice Plants.


Delosperma “Moonstone” has the pretty white flowers. Like a Moonstone! I don’t really know what a Moonstone is so I don’t really know. But sure!


Delosperma nubigenum is pretty even when it’s not in bloom! But those blooms…. When you see them….

And more… Many more.


Delosperma “Peridot”


Delosperma “Rosequartz”


Delosperma “Ruby”

Pachypodiums grow big and tall and spiny all over, and then we get to deliver them! Here you can see the crew preparing this 10 foot tall Pachypodium for delivery to Stinson Beach.


It may not be a cactus (Cactaceae), since it’s in the dogbane family instead (Apocynaceae) but you get the idea. It is however a Madagascar Palm, and it is very spiny underneath all the wrapping paper.

Jungle Cactus are some of the best winter cactus around. Along with the classic Christmas Cactus we have here a beautiful Mistletoe Cactus.

Rhipsalis salicornioides
Hanging epiphytic jungle cactus from Brazil, pendant to 6ft long. Not frost hardy, but will grow well in the Bay Area outside under an eave or porch overhang.

Amica came to visit for Thanksgiving! Benjamin was very happy to see his sister.


Amica now lives with a cat, Mister Cat, and Jen shared this photo with me so you could enjoy it too!

Jaxx visited too, but he’s not in the picture.
