It’s much too hot for me out there, but the cacti don’t care.
They keep on growing without slowing.
When the sun is blazing they are amazing.
They tend to thrive where no others survive.
They get dry but do not die.
They think it’s fun to sit in the sun.
I’m no fool. I am in where it’s cool.
This is an Easter cactus, Rhipsalidopsis.
It is finally blooming mid-June.
Maybe we should call it an Eid cactus,
since it is neither Easter nor spring right now.
Its blooms are pointy and sweet.
A cactus by any other name…
