It was a joy to see my silver bush packed with eye-catching purple flowers which were covered with bees collecting nectar.
Gomphrena flowers are still young. I am in love with these. Although they don't have any fragrance or nectar but still they look stunning when they are loaded with flowers.
Purple is one color you must add in your garden to increase its beauty.

I am literally dancing around my cacti these days. All six of the varieties that I have at home are doing superb.
Grafted one is also doing great. I have separated a baby plant from it and planted it in a new container. Its an experiment. I am not sure if babies of grafted cacti can be grown like that.
My little duck container is now filled with the cactus I planted few months back. It was just a one inched piece from a cactus and look at it now!
This one is the 3rd generation of my old cactus. I think its one of the ferocacti. I have gifted many baby cacti of the same plant to friends and kept 4 for myself.
I dont understand why people dont appreciate cacti that dont ask you for much!
Appreciate nature--- grow a cactus!
