Still not a lot in my garden, but my cactus is flowering and I thought it would be nice to show it to you for Floral Friday.
My mother has a photo of me from when I was about 10 or 11 sitting behind a cactus that had a lot of pink flowers. She’d had the plant for many years and I think it was the first time it had ever flowered. As you can imagine she was very happy about it, hence the photo.
The ones I have I got from my grandma. She died over 15 years ago, so I’ve had them for a long time. Unlike my mother, mine flower all the time, well every year at least. I don’t often photograph them because I don’t think of it quickly enough. The flowers really don’t last long, maybe a day and then they are gone.
Having said that I did go out the other day and took some photos of the garden. The cacti were flowering and I managed to get some shots. Here they are. Look to see what photobombed one of the images. Also, look after the gallery for my announcement.
The other day I told I was going to be working on another blog. I have done that and the first post has been done and I want to share it with you.
This blog is going to be about me and my world. I often want to bitch about things that frustrate me or talk about world events but have always felt I couldn’t do that here because this is a photography blog.
I really hope that some of you will go and take a look.
