After a long, cool and wet Spring, it looks like we'll get only our second 80 F day today. The plants are liking it. The Thelocactus schwarzii (Syn.: Thelocactus bicolor var. schwarzii) opened it's beautiful flower today and basked in the warm sun...as did we - for a little while. But no matter how busy, you just have to take time to enjoy the flowers. If you don't, why grow them at all?
