32 Year Old Cacti in flower...!

32 Year Old Cacti in flower...!

Isn't it great to have digital camera's and not have to worry about how many you take to get the perfect shot? I'm happy with how this one has turned out, but sometimes I find a difference when I load them onto GoY! Have had this cacti since 1982...! ;o)

It's been very happy in the conservatory, this Summer TT and it has just celebrated it's Birthday - A very quiet one this year!!! ;o)

I'm sorry Meanie, I've just noticed that I haven't replied to your question... I haven't got many cacti now... Back in 1982 I'd grown several on my Kitchen window sill - They were just so small you could hardly see them, but I was so proud of them! We were in the middle of moving house, and my Mum was helping to pack up everything in the Kitchen. She thought the container was full of grit... Can you guess what happened next? It got thrown out onto a border... (quiet sob!) I think my Father-in-Law saw that I was a little "upset" so he planted a container up for me and 32 years later it's still with us! :o)
