More Blooms

When feeding plants they grow better.
I always fed my roses, flowers, and grass.
But not the cactus flowering plants because they were more my husbands.
Since we moved a year ago and a lot of our cactus came with us...
I been feeding them.
My guess is this particular cactus has flowered four times already.
Some cactus only flower one time and it is DONE.

I did do a treatment on this photograph.
Paint Daubs, and a yellow filter.
Summer has not really been much here this season, and it is a wonder the cactus are flowering more than my roses should be at this time.  
The roses took a beating with the no sun, overcast damp weather.
I am grateful for whatever happens in my yard.
I am just confused about summer and fall.
I will take whatever I can get...

Shelly, yeah well you caught me. After I put it on I thought I should of asked you. Gee should I put it back on?

Your husband sure has a fabulous cactus garden that provides you with great photo opportunities. Well done.

JANE E KIRN said...

Yes he does ok, and he did all the digging and moving the cactus to new location. There are rocks, desert sand, and it looks nice.

But still claims I am feeding the cactus "steroids". There is one inside a garden window that is getting way too tall. I keep wanting to transplant it to bigger pot. So I don't feed it anymore since he thinks this is what I did to it!
