Happy Cactus Monday
So today was not quite as rainy but it was cool and overcast all day. They promise sunshine tomorrow and into the week. I may just take a chair and sit outside in the rays for a looooong time if it happens!
A couple of days ago I saw about an hour break in the weather and snuck outside and took some pictures. My kalanchoe fedtschenkoi is starting to bloom. This photo is kind of grainy because I zoomed in so much. I wanted to show you more details of what the individual buds and blooms look like.
Here is one of the flower stalks from the kalanchoe. I like the color. Remember the kalanchoe flower blooms I showed you from the succulent house in South Pasadena, CA a few posts ago? Those were so bright pink. I wonder what kind they were? Next time I'm there I will go knock on the door again.
This is Aloe variegata Partridge Breast. I had this aloe planted in another location but when I looked at it a week ago it was halfway out of the dirt! So I relocated it right away and it seems really happy. First bloom stalk in a while! The last time it bloomed it had 3 beautiful bloom stalks. So we will have to see what happens this time. I love the spots on the outside of this one.
Not to exciting of a post for today. I think my next post will be the shots I took at Lowe's the last time I was there. The flowers were incredible and the sun was just right.
So for now:
It's Another Beautiful Day!
