My Monday post about what is happening around my home.
This lovely cactus is Echinposis Oxygona or Easter Lily Cactus.
I can see where the name comes from but I would like something more fun and less normal.
Pink Cloud Floating Over Prickly Reality or something like that.
Isn't it lovely ?
Very large blooms, bursting from a very small cylinder shaped clumping cactus.
What beautiful delicate paper thin, soft pink tinted white petals.
They only bloom for a few days and then we have to wait for next May.
I don't remember this beautiful cactus name.
It also sends up a very tall bloom spike that towers over a very smallish cactus.
It is so red !
Such a saturated red that it is very hard to take a photo of the flower.
I don't know why but the color always washes out when I post with Picasa.
On my computer this is so searing bright red like the real bloom but somehow Picasa dulls the color, not sure why ?
I might have to go back to iPhoto.
The sun and moon have been in the news so much lately, that I though I would post a photo I took of the moon from a week ago.
With my little point and click I can never get a really good photo of the moon but I rather like this one.
and just to start the week off right
The Square Ones say woof and yert !
