The cacti are blooming. As I looked around at the various Christmas cacti, which are just starting on buds, I noticed this unexpectedly impressive flower from a cactus given us by Hedwig Biggle.
Here's what it looked like from far away:
I accidentally knocked over the christmas cactus a couple weeks ago and so now have some plantings from it and this cactus (which is in the same pot -pieces of both broke off and were given to root in other pots) so if people want some, let me know and I'll put you first in line after Bill picks which (if any) he wants. I know I still owe someone a christmas cactus. Sorry about the wait.
