Cactus Flowers Hibiscus Moon

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.)

FEBRUARY 18, FRESHLY PLANTED.
MARCH 13, MAKING THEMSELVES AT HOME.
I REMOVED THE LINT (TOP RIGHT) WITH TWEEZERS.
THE LOWER (DRY) FLOWER WAS THERE WHEN WE BOUGHT IT.
I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE FAKE.
THE COLLECTION OF HIBISCUS ON OUR TERRACE ARE OVERJOYED.
