I posted this picture on Instagram recently. I’m still in awe.
Three years ago I planted a piece of cactus that had come off one of the cacti in the front yard. It was about 10″ high and scrawny. Fortunately, it rooted quickly.
The first year two years it exploded. This year it’s growing taller. I have never done anything to it. I didn’t even water the piece I stuck in the soil. (I use the benevolent neglect form of gardening. 🙂 )
I am stunned by how much it’s grown. The new growth looks like flowers, but they’ll spread out into cactus pads. (The older cacti in the front yard have beautiful yellow blossoms later in the year.)
It’s life, renewing itself. It’s spring, saying, “Here I am!”
Isn’t it amazing?
