A Crown of Flowers
One of our many cactus has developed a beautiful crown of flowers. I was never a cactus gardener until James introduced me to them. I thought they looked dry and prickly and really didn't see their beauty. I have been sold on the idea of growing a variety of cacti. They have a variety of fascinating shapes and the blooms are always a surprise. The color of the blooms and often the size can be a big surprise. They are so easy to care for and add a lot to landscape and container gardens. My garden is very park and cottage like so my cacti are mostly in containers. Give cactus a try if you haven't included them in your garden, you will be pleasantly surprised. Just be careful you don't back up into them...ouch! Happy gardening~Jacque
