Dan you have such a gorgeous garden. Really enjoy your pics. What is the name of the shrub in the 2nd last picture? thanks Mona

Cactus?! Now dang it Dan, if I can't grown maples, and all those luscious evergreens you have, you shouldn't be able to grow cactus.

I'm beginning to think its not my climate that is the problem in keeping up with you. :)

Mona, if you're talking about the orange-leafed maple, it's Acer shirasawanum 'Autumn Moon'. The other plants in the picture are Japanese Variegated Sweetflag to the right (sorry I don't recall its Latin name) and Picea pungens 'Mrs. Cessarini', just showing a little geen at the top.
Rc, loved your response, the cactus in the picture is Opuntia humifusa (prickley pear cactus). It's actually hardy to Zone 4, but requires really sharp drainage to survive, even in my Zone 5. Given sharp drainage, it shrivels up in the winter but rehydrates come Spring and spreads like a weed once it gets going, love the flowers too, thanks for the comments, Dan
