Cactus flowers to brighten a hot Tuesday
Work’s been keeping me busy, cutting down on the time I have available to spend in the garden. But even on a hectic day like today I found a few minutes to putter around. Look what I found:
My Parodia magnificus, a ball cactus from southern Brazil, has two flowers! I love how delicate and fragile they look.
Most cactus flowers don’t last very long. However, the rebutias in this shallow bowl have been blooming for a full month now:
I first posted about them on May 21. Here we are, on July 1, and there are still flowers.
I hope your garden is rewarding you with unexpected surprises!
