Passion flower vines are jumping into high gear-
looking forward to some outer-space flowers from these!

Good to see this tree Opuntia flowering here-
to bad I had to cut it in half.

This guy is ready to bloom,these are not particularly
hardy and this guy has had a long road to get to blooming size....
I started with 5-6 all planted on the little rise
in the center of the cactus garden-this plant is
one of the pups that fell off the dying mother
and rolled down to its current spot-this is the only
one to live so,it has some hardiness!

Top of the Tricho-already half a foot of growth with
temps just now warming up.

Little Takil is still on the mend...if you look close
you can see a tiny petiole and a half leaf,the next will be a healthy little "spear"...ideally..
