Fall Cactus Flowers

Hello, Everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted the goings-on in the cactus garden so I thought I would share a few photographs.

Oreocereus trolii and Faucaria tigrina

Old Man of the Mountains has surrounded himself with his own personal posse. Tiger Jaws starting to show off some late season blooms.

I wish she stood up a bit straighter. I’ll have to prop her up with a stone at the next transplant.

Echinocactus grusonii

I can always count on this Golden Barrel Cactus to put on a new hat of fresh flowers every couple of months. Not sure why the bottom of her collapsed onto itself a bit. Anyone have an idea?

Euphorbia Mammillaris Variegata – Corn Cob Cactus

This is is really enjoying a recent transplant. It’s grown very much in the last month. I’ll have to remove some arms for new starters.

We recently transplanted the Pachypodium lamerei, Madagascar Palm, to its present position in front of the garage. It evidently loves it, because the head has never been this large before. We tried to face it away from the sunlight because it is starting to grow that way, but its not having any of that. Awesome!

I love my cactus. They are a bit like an extended family. More to come!

  1. I love all of this. I am struggling to recover from an extended illness and major surgery. Trying to find strength and inspiration to do something. I just have no strength left. Keep posting and send major prayers.

    • Victoria, consider yourself prayed for my Friend. Surgery is tough; I know from personal experience. Remember, our earthly bodies are perishing day by day, but the inward man, the spirit, is at the same time being renewed day be day. One day all those who love God will see him and be changed to become just as Christ is now – glorified and living in brand new bodies. Amen! Every tear shall be wiped away and death will reign no more over us.

      Bless you. Me and mine will say a prayer this very night!
