I snapped this anonymous cactus on a trip visit to the local nursery in November.
The nursery now has a large stock of cacti and succulents of all sizes and shapes

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

I think the second plant is a fenestraria, commonly known as "baby toes"

Andrew, I think you are probably correct in thinking the plant with yellow flowers is Fenestraria.

I looked for Fenestraria  in the index of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN  and found that  it is mentioned in number 52, April 2008 in MY WOODEN ROCKERY  by Bob Wright
