just the right size 

Speaking of cactus… the Table of Pain was missing a barrel cactus, round and mean they can frequently be found with enviable girths. But on the table space is at a premium so it took some exploring to find a baby barrel.

Cactus and Tropicals came through for me. They have the most spectacular exemplar in the ground of their greenhouse in the Sugar House location. I took a few quick shots a few nights ago:

The largest on above is probably 20-24 inches in diameter. I am not counting on mine ever getting so large but it would be nice to see it grow, even a little.
