Early this morning, stepping out of the house to take my morning walk, I looked across the street at the neighbor’s cactus. It’s a beauty and must be about 15-18′ tall. It reminds me of the ones that grew in my house, limited to a height of 10′ by the ceiling.

The blossoms of my neighbor’s cactus are amazing. By the time I returned from my walk they had already closed up for the day.

    …and this time “they” have unlimited ceiling to grow as tall as they choose…lovely!

    Blossoms are spectacular on any plant/tree. Just a delight.

    (Just finished trimming one of my blossom trees – this past spring was the best yet – huge snowball blossoms. Another tree is over 50ft – it is something to see in the spring)

      and this other tree – omg – it goes through 3 transformations (4 if you include fall) each year.
      3 in 1.

      Over 50ft tall – can thank neighbors for that !!-Nerve of new neighbors.

      (trimming changes growth patterns – been gardening for 30 year )

        well …gonna share this -re my garden.

        Right now my peonies and delphiniums are about to bloom . It’s non stop from spring to fall with blooms …and it keeps getting better each year.

        re design – ….constantly moving things around. I work with all kinds of materials …(too the annoyance or jealousy of some neighbours !)

        I like everything …trees, …leaf shape, size colour, texture ……rocks./stones..pots …glass., iron etc. It’s my canvass

        My challenge is the sandy soil…makes it a hard winter.
