The Colors of Spring

I was born and raised in southern Colorado and I remember seeing cactus bloom out there, but my memory fails me. Will those bloom only in the spring?

 

Thanks for brightening the day!

J-Bar, we'll be having new blossoms through the summer.  The fauna and cacti here seem to bloom at different times, giving us poor unfortunates here a riot of colors for the next few months.  I personally look forward to when the saguaro bloom. 

Below is a pic of the saguaro blooming and subsequent fruit behind our house from last year.

The desert is really in color now with all that's blooming.  The white flowers on the saguaro & yucca, and yellow flowers on the palo verde are all in their glory

 

This is the view from the Master Bathroom window. 

It's what I have to look at when shaving.

The azalea by the front porch is still showing off.

The rose bush in the backyard likes all the rain we’ve had.

And the hibiscus on the deck is starting to get the idea.

I just got back  from taking our dog for her mid-morning constitutional. Took a couple of shots.

I haven't had the greatest luck with flowering shrubs. I planted a beautiful Kabarett Rhododendron a few years ago. The first year it had profuse flowers. This year it has one so far. It looks like this.

Are you feeding it, Miz Mo? Rhodies need Mir-acid ,i believe.:blush:

Thanks, Buck!

 

Hubby fed everything this year. My notes (I made a spreadsheet) agree with you.  He probably used the same fertilizer on everything.
