The Last Hurrah

Thelocactus 'bicolor'


Sometimes, I think I 'will' a cactus to bloom just in time for Bloomin' Tuesday. Nothing at all looks promising and just when I think I'll have to skip another BT post for lack of blooms, then pow. An unexpected cactus bloom--or two, in this case.

Great blooms... It'a amazing how the things seem to pop open overnight sometimes, isn't it?

What a great last hurrah! The petals do look like feathers and no one could miss it with it's gorgeous color. Jean

How wonderful that it flowered in time and with such pretty flowers too. Must tell my Mum about willing cacti to flower. ;-)

How pretty! I was having internet problems last 3 days...it's good to be back!

Dee said...

gorgeous!!! I love the pink color- I don't have many cactus that have produced pink flowers.

Congratulations on your Blotanical win.

Thanks. I hadn't even looked. I'll have to do that today. Lately I've been busy and not posting regularly or visiting Blotanical, so didn't even realize I was in the running for anything until last week.

I don't have anything that blooms that beautifully. We are experiencing Autumn here and I pulled out my annuals yesterday. It was 40 degrees last night. I'll miss them. They are like friends.

Congrats on your blog award!
