Cactus Monday~Bloomin' Rats!!!!

Finally, the Rat Tail Cactus puts on its show! Its a beautiful plant without the blooms but when it blooms there is nothing like it! It is just stunning to see! I love the bright orange flowers in masses! The best part is it really does get neglected a lot of the time and it still thrives!
Happy Cactus Monday!!!
Swing by our hostess Terri for Cactus Monday and say hey!




And of course what would Cactus Monday be without a couple Semps thrown in...???

A spiderweb on this Semp makes it look pretty interesting...


These Semps are climbing out the bottom of a basket.

Hi Joy,
They are easy to grow too! You could grow one there(-: You would have to bring it inside in the winter but it would be worth the moving around(-:

Hi Randy,
Thanks! These are such easy cactus to grow. They can grow big too. The "tails" just keep going and going!!!!

That rat tail looks just like a rat tail. And that bloom is pretty. I read where you are super busy and good for you. I hope it's in the garden and not work-work. Working in the garden isn't the same. I was gone all weekend and had a blast. It was so nice to get away.

That is a spectacular cactus in bloom Cindee. I am not familiar with it either but I'm just starting to like some succulents and cacti. Anything that can survive with a little neglect is always a plus!
