Cristate Trichocerues pachanoi

My favourite cacti are definitely cristate varieties, such as these two Trichocereus pachanoi:



 It is fascinating watching how they develop with each Summer's growth.

Morning Glory - 1st Bloom of 2021

I awoke up yesterday morning to be greeted by the first Morning Glory (Heavenly Blue) bloom of 2021. :)


On a gloomy weekend, this really was a beautiful sight to behold... :)


... a reminder of the beauty nature can bring to our lives :)


The bloom was shocking in its brilliance and size, but as is the way of Morning Glories...


... lasted mere hours before its beauty faded, its bloom dried and withered, leaving only memories (and photots) of it former glory:

Carnie Bottle Garden

A fair while ago, I found this large glass bottle looking neglected in an antiques market. £20 lighter in the pocket, I headed back home with it...


Fast forward a few years and the bottle has now found a  use in my home - as a Carnie bottle garden :)
