I’m enjoying the blossoms on cactus, but they are very short lived. One day there are furious blooms and the next day, they’ve expired.
I’ve been keeping my eye on the neighbor’s Century plant and wanted to make sure I wouldn’t miss the flowers.
You can imagine how sad we felt when we went on our morning walk today and saw this:
There was a cactus in our little park that also fell over.
Oh no! What happened?
We don’t know. I wonder if it got to tall and too heavy?
Oh no, that’s a shock. Is there a cactus disease going around, or did someone not nice perhaps do this?
It broke at the roots. It could be wild animals or just too too heavy.
It is. I’ve seen too many beautiful plants fall over lately. I think they are overwatered.
Oh no – that is sad.
It is. The roots looked really small so it may have been too heavy.
That’s too bad. But, the one down the street got very tall and the blooms were nothing to write home about in my opinion.
I’m disappointed I don’t get to find out.
Ha, I would like to see if you bloom when you hit 100!
NOOO! I hate to see this. 🙁
I know! There was also a beautiful tall cactus called a totem pole cactus that fell over in our park, too. I think it’s overwatering or all the rain we had. The roots don’t grow deep because the water is plentiful on top.
Ah, how simple a thing to break one’s heart, but mine pangs as well! It is devastating when a thing of beauty overreaches itself and so comes tumbling down . . .
Thank you for your understanding and comment.
