This clump of cacti is blooming again. I saw a hummingbird buzzing around the flowers yesterday. An old, but good picture )

When I came back from having lunch with a friend yesterday I looked at this cactus out front. It's never bloomed before as far as I know. I noticed there were drooping buds like on the branch to the top right and healthy looking buds like the one darkly seen on the opposite side of the same branch. I said to myself, "Yikes, it's a night bloomer!" I meant to go out last night but forgot all about it till early this morning. One photo )

Astrophytum asterias

A little larger than life sized. The plant is reddish from the spring sun despite living its life behind a screen.

It's been awhile. Many of my smaller cactus that aren't from this area have died off. This one is a local and one of my favorites.

Thought you might be interested in what the agave looks like when the pods on the bloom stalk open. Not exactly flowers but still pretty. One pic  )
