This cactus was given to me by the boys several years ago. We used to take it with us everywhere we traveled but it has become too big and heavy to deal with so it now winters in Iowa. We do bring it inside and it gets watered a couple of times per winter. We take it outside in the Spring once the danger of frost is past.
It has always been a bloomer and this year is no exception.
This morning's bikeride was one of those that make your heart sing. It is cool after the rain and everything looks clean and fresh. The sun is shining beautiful light and shadows accentuating the pristine appearance of it all.
My only obstacle was dodging the twigs and branches on the trail.
