Wow. It’s been so long since I last posted. I have been sitting on this for a while wondering where to start so I think I’ll just start with yesterday.
I bought a new plant! Whenever I pass by “Poppies“, my favourite local floral shop I can’t resist peering in the window to see what’s new. Recently I saw a lovely epiphytic cactus hanging near the front window. Yesterday afternoon as I was walking by temptation got the best of me and I went inside. I was all set to buy the plant, a Rhipsalis, when I caught out of the corner of my eye, hidden amongst the foliage of a cluster of plants another pencil cactus in full bloom. The Rhipsalis was large and crazy with long prehistoric-like tendrils hanging down, but the new plant, a Hatiora salicorniodes (related to the Easter Cactus), was also pretty large and bursting with small orangey-yellow flowers. After a lot of deliberation, flowers won over prehistoric tendrils and I went for the Hatiora.
I took a bunch of photos this morning when the light was good.
