A 17-Year Wait

Remember the Indian Fig (Opuntia ficus-indica I wrote about recently? The one that had not produced a single bloom in 17 years? Well...................


Tahdah! I saw two buds yesterday, and this morning one had opened!!! I am soooo happy! There are only the two buds on the pad--not sure if it will produce any more. These two came up suddenly, so maybe more will come.

I like the orangy color of your cactus flower. Some are a paler yellow without as much orange, so you got a good one!
