Thursday gardening post

I have an exciting gardening event to share. A couple of weeks ago, I posted  photos of my native Wisconsin cactus. I've had it 6 or 7 years, but it's never bloomed. Well, it finally is blooming this year, and I'm thrilled.

The patch. More blooms are on the way soon.

Oh, beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Is this cactus supposed to flower every 7 years???

Very pretty - and I would have had no idea that cacti can bloom like that.

So pretty.

Why can't we be friends?

Now that Sadie is feeling better, she's become a pest when we eat dinner. She was trying to get to my dinner plate, when Lucy jumped up...
