My back is sore from spending hours each day picking weeds--something I've been doing since our record rains in January, February and early March. But, all the rain did bring some nice spring color to my garden. Seems like things are blooming later than usual, at least by a couple of weeks.
Several species of Mammillaria are now blooming. By now I usually have many cacti in bloom, but so far, flowers have been sparse.
This cactus outgrew its pot, so I just decided to plant it in the ground last fall. So far, it's been doing well, and it's one cactus that bloomed right when expected.
