Echinopsis surprise (flower pic)
I had an Echinopsis surprise this week. I know, I know, it sounds like some type of dessert, heh heh, but it's actually been a nice little display on one of my un-named Echinopsis cactus plants. I thought you might enjoy seeing it too.

Close view of an individual bloom from the side:
It's a no-name plant that I purchased as a "rescue" at a garage sale a few years ago and it's done really well since then. It gets unobstructed sun from sunrise until mid-afternoon when it gets shaded from a lemon tree. I water it once a week during the blast furnace months, and then maybe, just maybe, once a month the rest of the year.
I hope you'll take a look and enjoy. Let us hear (or see!) what's looking good, or awful, in your garden this month (I have plenty of both).
