Our first of the season Cherry Red Cactus Flowers opened up today. These two are on top of the original “mama” cactus that we separated from her “pups” in October of 2018. This Trichocereus Grandiflorus cactus is just outside our courtyard gate where they are visible (like a hot red beacon) when approaching our place from the east.
Several of the pups are located in the courtyard in pots and one of them is in the ground not far from where the Mama is located. Most, if not all of them have flower buds which means we will be seeing more of these over the summer. Click on the image above to enlarge.
Very pretty. Do they have any aroma? Our lavender and lilacs are going crazy this year. The whole neighborhood smells beautiful with all the plants and flowers blooming. Makes it worth going through Winter just to see Spring!
It really does but, glad it’s here. Love the Spring. No they don’t smell, they don’t have to, just the color alone is striking. Hope all is well.
