It seems like I have purple and pink blooms in my garden this week. This cactus was left to me by my homes previous owner. It gets a crown of little pink blooms around the top of it. The very first ones are just starting to poke out. I'm not sure what kind of cactus this is.
This little vine almost died when planted in the shady front flower bed. I put it on the side where it gets partial sun, and after a few months it has some good new growth, and the first tiny purple flower. It looks blue in the picture- but is really more purple than blue. I bought this vine before my interest in plant names grew, so this one is also unknown.
Remember the gorgeous Snail Vine I bought last summer and planted at the base of the bird feeder? It really struggled at first but the first bloom since planting opened and it is a beauty! The first picture is yesterday when it just started to open, and the last picture is todays.
