my trip to Los Angeles

I was in LA last week visiting relatives. It sure was hot!
Driving back on CA interstate 126 (the Ventura Freeway) I passed a place called Cactus Mart. It looked pretty neat, but it was 8am on a Sunday. They were closed. Anybody been there?
Here are some pix of 2 plants I purchased at the California Cactus Center. And a picture of an opuntia I got off a hillside behind my aunt's house. I cleared some trash up there and the opuntia pad was my reward. I didn't have a blue opuntia. I do now!
First, gasteria batesiana variegata from the CCC.

A sansaveria from the CCC. I love these plants for the house.

Thanks for looking.

Oh, gorgeous Gasteria!

RE: my trip to Los Angeles

Nice Gasteria. I've passed the place on 126 many times but haven't had the chance to stop in. Every time I pass it I'm either on business or have the family with me. It's just far enough away from me to discourage a planned trip, also I'd be bummed if I didn't find many plants of interest... cacti are not really my thing.

You also passed within a mile of my house when you hit the 101.
