Chamaelobivia ‘Rose Quartz’ 1-2-3
A recent cactus fiend
The Chamaecereus silvestrii, Peanut cactus, just popped out a handful of buds! This one was post-bloom when I bought it two years ago, and it didn’t bloom last year, so I am quite excited for its saturated orange blossoms!
While doing my Master’s research in León, Guanajuato over the summers of 2009-2010, I visited Guanajuato, GTO several times. On July 25, 2009, my primo Chava and I visited Casa Olga Costa, the Olga Costa and Jose Chavez Morado Museum in their former home. The museum contains over 70 works from the artists, as well as their possessions and personal art collection. In addition, the rear patio contains a beautiful patio and garden that contains many cacti and succulents, as well as stone art pieces. It is certainly a cultural stop worth taking and the museum curator has the best recipe for café de la olla that he will gladly share with you. This garden is also an inspiration for mine. Enjoy!
