Yesterday morning, I snuck over to the neighbors and took a few pics of their Argentine Giant cactus as it was blooming.
I didn’t think they’d notice as I snapped a few pics and stepped around this giant to see the other side.
Imagine our surprise when Tu-Na Helper and I heard a knock on our patio door about 5:00 in the afternoon.
“Karen, come get your camera.” The voice said. “You should see my cactus now.”
Our next door neighbor had heard that I had been over taking pictures of his cactus in the morning.
I was not disappointed. In fact, I was surprised to see just how many buds had opened in just a few hours.
“Tu-Na Helper, dear, can we have one of those Argentine Giants in our yard, please,” I asked.
Update: See here for the latest look at the neighbor’s cactus as it explodes in blossoms.
What I Learned Today:
- I would not make a good spy as I get caught easily.
- Or maybe it’s that nothing gets past the neighbors.
- Our windows are very thin.
- I’ll be seeing more cacti blooms as we’ve got tickets to the Desert Botanical Gardens and are planning on going there on Sunday.
Question: What’s the biggest flower or the most unusual flower you’ve seen?
Thanks for stopping by and do come again.
