Here's one I've called " The Burning Bush" I thought those what your calling blooms were just just simply the plants new growth, it gets bigger & bigger and those are new shoots.

Lolol..You are too funny Jay. Just to let you know, there are NO flowers just yet.lol

Greg, I too love the coloring on that cactus against the house! What is it? Where can I get a hold of one of those? Lovely.
By the way, now that is what I call plant on fire! I almost have to wear sun glasses looking at that. Wow, the red! Boy does that plant light up a dimmly lit area for sure.

Thanks for the comps, Those are some type of cacti pads which have blooms that start off yellow and then turn into a mauve tone they actually add alot of color to the garden a demand attention I guess, because many inquire about them as they walk by, So maybe it's time to give them a new pot to brighten them up even more, Ah, I just got an idea, see you in a little bit.

Ok, so just another angle of the same shot earlier except I forgot to say, yes Kathy that's a all green plant of the burning bush / sticks of fire.
