Parkes, New South Wales has a blooming plant, and it’s a cactus! This is big news in Parkes, I’m sure.
And it will greatly surprise you to learn what they are – cactus flowers!
The cactus plants were put in by well known local native gardener, Herb Unger, now in his 90s.
I’m getting tired of these local newspapers expressing surprise that a cactus is flowering. It’s kinda stupid. Maybe I should stop posting these entries. On the other hand, I could just make fun of them more. OK, so I’ve resolved: more stupid local newspaper articles! More of everything here on cactus blog! w00t!
