The other morning while out doing my early morning swim I noticed my favorite cactus by the pool had two new flowers on it. I love these flowers because they are so huge.
They only last one night, then they slowly drop away and off then leave a fruit behind.
The birds love the fruit once ripe but it is the bees that I love watching the most with this flower.
They crawl in and out of the flower working together.
I wonder what it looks like inside at their level.
I bet it’s amazing up close inside a flower like that.
I could watch these little creatures for hours but the sun was coming up and that meant the heat here in our city, so I finished my swim and watered the garden.
I wish there were more trees and green things in our city to keep the temps down but they are always building more and more streets and buildings. It has made our city a heat trap.
Anyway, just wanted to share some of these beautiful flowers with you all. I have taken photos of them before so if you are one of my followers you will recognize them.
If you live in a city, please plant something. Our planet could use more of the green things. Enjoy those beautiful busy bees everyone.
Coming up next week…Dollar day do over. Just like the chickens it has been awhile since I had one of these projects. This is a project from my garden and a different way to use grandma’s old teacup and saucer set. I will also have a fun little paper project for the kids to add to your teacup garden project, hope you stop by for a visit. Have a great weekend everyone.
