Cactus Craze!

IMG 2710

 Even though they are now finished blooming I couldn’t let my cactus go unmentioned because this year they really did outdo themselves! They bloomed a little earlier than most years and they produced a bud on nearly every leaf. And, they all bloomed at once in one gloriously colorful bouquet of salmon, white, fuchsia and pinky-red! I kept trying to get a good photo of them but I was never quite satisfied that the photos showed them to their true beauty. At least you can get an idea.

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but unlike my Mom’s watering protocol of “starving” them of water at certain times of the year, I water mine all year long. Not much, just a little every time I water the other plants. Even when my neighbor waters my plants when we are gone she tells me “they don’t need much water anyway” I tell her to give them a little drink. They reward me with blooming two or three times a year so I must be doing something right!
