It has been a busy few days but I did have time to stop and smell the flowers ! Of course I didn't get too close I didn't want to get poked in the nose !
The last hot day did the trick and brought out this lovely gal . Every time it flowers it is very special, it like a visit from my grandma ,she is the one that gave me this cactus, and it only flowers when the summer is real hot. So when it shows it's flower I feel like she is stopping by for a visit.She loved all the worlds flowers and plants. Amazing that something so beautiful can come out of something so plain.
I've been busy getting things ready for my next party and the holiday shopping season it has begun ! Here is some of what I have been working on . I hope you enjoy them.
