A recent cactus fiend
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
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.
