Garden Surprises

I have no idea who gave me this flower, or when I planted it, but this morning I went out and there it was!
 An incredible bloom.  Wow.  I can't believe I have something that looks this fancy in my garden.
On a different note, I don't really understand the cactus.  I am wondering if it is just growing so fast it can't support itself... because it is certainly lying down on the job. We keep shifting the rock to try and support it, and it just wonks over in the other direction.  So, it is just going to have to stay like that now, I think, and grow up from there.  Hmmmm.
And finally, the desert willow is still sweet and seems to be creating numerous little pink buds. So I am hopeful that we will get quite a show in a few days time.


  1. Seems like your garden is always "gifting" you with surprises. The iris is gorgeous, and the leaves on the desert willow are so graceful. And I can totally relate to the cactus: in this heat, you just want something to prop you up.

  2. True. Lots of gifts keep coming, so I should be grateful. And the poor wilted cactus. I thought they were supposed to like heat!
