The Cacti Table @ Laurie’s




On Sunday it was lovely meeting my local group of the BCSS (British Cactus + Succulent Society) at Laurie’s house where he was showing us his greenhouses full of his cacti collections. There were also sale tables of various succulents, some of which I photographed. Please see the photographs below.


I ended up buying 9 x little ones to take home with me.


The plants left over are to be going on the BCSS table at the Gorleston CliffTop Festival this coming weekend.


It was great meeting the other members who were very welcoming. (The reason John and I missed them at the monthly meeting was because they had a fish and chip evening at someone’s house and the details hadn’t been verified on the club page and my email wasn’t working to receive the latest group updates).


The last photo is included in this post because we found it funny finding a ladybird stuck in John’s chest fluff. We’d never seen a yellow one before!

About Oscar Dandelion

Hi, I'm Faith McCord, writer of the Oscar Dandelion books. I love reading, writing, watching films, looking at architecture and general design, embroidery (especially Elizabethan), spending time with my family. I used to enjoy long walks, bodybuilding, going out, however, since my injury my mobility is seriously impaired, so I'm more of a home-body now. I'm interested in meeting other indie / pro writers, so do say 'Hello' ! :)
