サボテンアレンジ Cactus arrangement

2014.2.1 
2月にしてはとんでもなく温かい日になった。暫くの間温めていたアレンジを作ることにした。この珪化木がうまく割れるかが一つの課題だったが,叩いたり,ひねったりしたらうまく割れた。
For February, it was really unusually warm.  I decided to make an arrangement that I had been considering about half a month.
One of the issues was whether I can crack this rock easily, but by hitting and twisting the rock successfully created some proper size of rocks.

植えるサボテンはこの銀手毬2鉢。

A cactus used was this Mammillaria vetula_ssp_gracilis that I had two pots. 


鉢から抜く時に,子供がポロポロ取れてしまう。まあ想定内のことだ。後で挿してみよう。
As I pulled off the cactus from the pot, some babies dropped off.  Well, that had been expected.  I planted them later in another pot.



出来上がりはこれだ。

Voila,  after an hour, this is the outcome.
