Wednesday Vignette: Cacti Blooms Captured

I realized one of my torch cacti bloomed this year, and it was the first time i got pictures of the blooms looking good. So even though this happened back in April, i had to share:
pink-ish white blooms
I buy these plants usually when they are not in blooms, so it's always a bit of a surprise when they bloom for the first time...
they live on the top of the hill
They are perfect plants for living up there - i do almost nothing to them. Maybe some water every once in a while when it's hot, and that's about it.
and this is the reward!
I mean, how can you not love cacti?


  1. Gotta love those plants that thrive with neglect. As a bonus, it has very pretty flowers. I use pelargoniums in the same way on my back patio which often goes for days without a drink.

  2. definitely beautiful. Torch cacti do seem like a surprise gift when it comes time to flower. I never know the color - and then these oversized, amazing, vibrantly colored flowers appear for a day or two before fading away.
