A return to Cactus Monday and a few other blooms too
It has been so long since I joined in with Cactus Monday. Winter had slowed my gardening down and made me a lazy blogger. Now that Spring is here and my cactus are starting to bloom I have new motivation to post. My Golden Barrel has a flower bud coming up...I think this is the first time this barrel has bloomed so I am excited to see the color.
New growth on the prickly pear.
I love the new little pads- they are so green and the prickles are soft not prickly.
My Canna in the morning light.
The Baja Fairy Duster is blooming like crazy now that warmer weather is here.
A yellow Jessamine vine (I think)
Japanese Wisteria (Texas Purple)
A brand new one- Echinocereus reichenbachii or "Lace Cactus"
A recently purchased cactus whose first bud is finally opening.
