In the garden right now, it's still clean up time - pruning, getting the leaves out of everything, figuring out what the cold and/or gophers damaged over the winter... nothing too pretty! But, to remind myself that the winter chores pay off, here are some pictures of one of my cactus (trichocereus grandiflora) hybrids that bloomed for the first time last year!
the only red-ish one i have
it lives on the top of the hillside, behind one of the pine trees
looks pretty in the blue pot!
it bloomed over several weeks!
Here's to hoping it (and all the rest of them...) bloom again this year!
