Cactus Bloom


Echinocereus armatus
You know, those crazy Echinocereuses are at it again. They are blooming very early this year. Last week we had that white flower spectacular. Today it’s purple day. Some would say pink, but I’m not quite sure. But I do know it’s 6″ across. Don’t they look like feathers that should be plucked and used on the end of an arrow? We do carry Arrow Bamboo, so you could cut a culm and create your own set of arrows. But then it turns out these are just petals, and not feathers, and so the arrow would not fly true and straight to its target, but would fall flat onto the ground.

Tomorrow, we’ll peek inside this wonderful flower.
