The Overachiever

Cacti are known for their beautiful flowers.

This little cactus is an overachiever, however.

The cactus itself is just about the size of a baseball. The flower has a larger diameter than the cactus.

It has at least two more fuzzy buds, so you can be sure I will be watching it closely. It flowered at last night, and was only open for about an hour early this morning. It would be easy to miss the next show.

  1. I have a huge cactus like this. It has about two dozen flowers coming up on it right now. I wish it would bloom during the day though. It’s an easy cactus to grow.

    • Yes, it would be nice if they bloomed during the day. The saguaros stay open later in the morning so you can see them.
