Pretty much every other day I step into my roof top garden in this fabulous spring season, I find new growth, new blossoms, or buds popping up.  It’s so much fun to look forward to!  Today I was watering my plants as usual and monitoring the insects (good and bad) that visit my plants.  I found such a cool surprise!  I had gotten this cactus as a party favor in December (2.5 months ago) at the Cactus and Succulent Society of San Jose (CSSSJ) holiday party and now it is about to bloom!  I never liked cacti and this specimen is the only one I own.  I couldn’t help the smile on my face when I saw these itty bitty buds on top of such a forbidding looking plant naturally engineered to cause pain.  Now, we wait for the buds to bloom!
