A look at some prickly new growth.
Few words today. Opuntia 'Dark Night' wakes up.
As does Pachypodium lamerei, after living in a dark corner indoors as a large spiked stick for months:
My Christmas cholla isn't doing great, but better this spring than last:
Not sure which Opuntia this was...
And this Cylindropuntia whipplei is so slow:
It will be surrounded by bigger potted non-hardy succulents this year, so maybe it will get a hint and start moving a bit faster.
It also has this growing next to it:
Which I think is a California poppy, although I don't know specifically which kind or if that's even correct. I sprinkled a lot of seed packets in this area...
Have a wonderful weekend that brings you the weather you're hoping for!
It will be cool here in St. Louis, but for you in the upper midwest and central plains, maybe colder than you really want?
