Echinopsis subdedantum ‘Dominoes’

The bloom is at the critical phase: I’ll know in a few days if it will decide to flower. I also made another discovery: a pup - and it is very furry!

Saturday panorama

One hummingbird was back this morning, the pampas are in full bloom despite being shorter than normal this year, the Mammillaria are covered in fruit, the crepe myrtle is persisting the heat, and all the cacti are still actively growing

Mammillaria pringlei / This one has such a striking contrast of spines and blooms, and you can just see the developing hairs around the crown.

In one of the recent editions of the Journal of the Mammillaria Society, a member reported recording every bloom and subsequent fruit, or chilito, for an entire year. While (1) I would love to do that and (2) I have no time to accomplish such a task, I can say that this year is turning out to be quite prolific.

There is only one way to clean up weeds and dried fruits on this big boy: tweezers.

The Opuntia engelmannii has more than recovered last year’s growth after the rough winter - and it is still putting on new pads.
