First of all, thanks for the votes and I was very surprise that my cactus won. I am posting three pictures, First picture is from 1996. I scanned it from picture, not digital, poor results. However, the picture will show how big the cactus was at that time. The second was from 2000 and another scanned picture. The last was from my digital about the same time different angle.

Neat! I like seeing the "before" images too. I think the Echinopsis are happy in your yard.
