Watching the birds and tending my patch of the Sonoran Desert

Watching and waiting- seems I spend quite a bit of time pondering when this or that one will bloom. This little cactus is a Gymnocalycium stenopleurum. It "almost" opened up a few days ago, late in the afternoon. Then we had a couple days of rain and the blooms closed up tight again. Maybe today? It reminds me of the old Carly Simon song, "Anticipation- it's making me wait- its keeping me waiting"
