The mystery flower from this month’s Monthly Meet-Up Photo Challenge is a Cactus flower. I have no idea of the name of the cactus – do you know?
It is not too late to enter the challenge – just add your flower photos to the comments in the post. You can see each Month’s prompt word here.
I am delighted with the flowers as for years this gifted cactus sat forlornly on a shelf sulking – then I discovered that it needed watering more often than I had been doing, feeding, and it needed a period of drought in the winter. Ta dah! Beautiful pink flowers!
Joining Cathy’s crew for In a Vase on Monday
Follow the link to see lots of beautiful vases from gardeners all over the world.
The giraffe with the fancy pink hardo of antirrhinum is a vase from Chive.
The Zebra, carrying forget-me-nots on its back is a little coffee cup I found in a charity shop.
The antirrihnum has been sitting in bud for months, waiting for the sunshine, in this south facing Veg Trug
and now it has burst forth into luscious blooms
Don’t you just love the complicated design of this playful snapdragon, it intrigues me and delights the children. They love to squeeze it’s cheeks so that it opens its dragony mouth and then snap it shut again.
