Autumn Sunshine

Some of the most lovely blooms this autumn are in the cacti garden. The Ariocarpus and Conophytum are all in full swing, shown right is an Ariocarpus scapharostrus in the Huntington Library collection left is a Conophytum ectypum 'Mabel's Fire'. The Lithops and kin will begin to bloom soon in yellows and oranges, fleeting reminders of summer.
