My Little Cactus ...





I have a little cactus,
It's really rather nice.
(Actually, it is really ugly !!)
It usually only flowers once,
This time it was twice !!!
(Except I missed photographing the first one !!)

MEOW

I think it's cool! (nice rhyming)

Meow said...

Thanks, Jenn. The flowers are so beautiful, but only last the day. Next day they are limp and dead. The plant is scraggly and ugly, but I keep it for the brief glimpse once a year of that beautiful flower (or in this case, 2 beautiful flowers !!)
Have a great day, Meow

is that growing out of the wall? i like your little cactus. i was trying to think of a poem, but i gave up.

Meow said...

Susie, no it is not growing out of the wall LOL. It is in a pot on the ground, near the wall, and has become quite tall. The poem is pretty lame, I feel. Not one of my better ones !!!! I have written some pretty good (at least I think so) poetry in the past. Take care, Meow

Meow said...

Jennifer, thank you ... I think it is rather special, considering the ugly plant it comes from !!

I think you captured the moment beautifully!

Meow said...

DaybyDay, thanks. Had to be quick though, or I might have missed it until next year !!!

Very cool flower. I love to the second picture.

Jamie Dawn said...

I don't think it's ugly at all. Very neat looking!
Your poem made me smile.

Meow said...

Michelle, thank you.

Momyblogr, the second picture of the back of the flower is interesting (except you can see the junk in my yard !!)

Jamie, the flower is beautiful, but the plant is an eyesore ... I should take a photo of the whole plant perhaps !! Glad to know you are smiling.

Take care all, Meow

I don't think it's ugly. In fact I find it gorgeous and lovely. What kind of cactus is it? Share me with the name? who knows we have that over here.

Meow said...

I'm about to go outside and take a photo of the ugly cactus without it's beautiful flower. Not a pretty sight. Don't actually know what it is, sorry. Got it as a cutting once. Take care, Meow

After waiting for quite some time for a beautiful flower to pop out of a plant, it can be really be frustrating to see it go limp the next day.

Btw, what kind of cactus is this?

Meow said...

Viamarie ... no idea what sort of a cactus it is. Got it as a cutting years ago. Have a great day, Meow
