We’ve had flowers all winter but our plants seem to be ecstatic that spring is nearly here. Even the small cacti San Geraldo planted mid-February are covered with buds and blossoms. They’ll dry out and remain where they are. I get pricked just looking at the things. The plants on the terrace have also been celebrating. Today they’re aglow in the sunshine and protected behind our glass curtain from San Geraldo’s (raging) cyclonic winds, and the rain that’s expected to arrive later today and to linger all day tomorrow. (Click the images to see the beauty close-up.)
