This time Tu-Na Helper came with.
We saw this cactus last night as the buds were opening but it was too dark to take any pictures so we went back this morning.
Just in case you are wondering; I counted 69 blooms. I might have missed one or two.
I just had to share this one again as it is truly spectacular now.
What I Learned Today:
- Patience and persistence is important.
- When we were at the Desert Botanical Gardens on Sunday (pics are coming), I learned that the pistil (female part that grows the seeds) is the larger (star burst) shape in the center of the flower, and the stamen (male part containing the pollen) is the smaller hair like structures around it. Both parts are necessary to carry on the existence of plants.
- The bees are busy today!
Question: Do you like to have flowers growing in your garden/yard or do you like to receive floral bouquets? I like having them in my yard so I can enjoy them longer.
Thanks for stopping by and do come again.
