Week 19 – Judy



Pretty Buds all in a Row

These are flower buds of a Pear Cactus. They bloom into beautiful white flowers for only one night. Then when the flowers fall off a small eatable fruit forms. Another popular use of the fruit is to make Cactus Pear jelly.

    Nice looking buds! The color is beautiful and the background makes them stand out. You have such a knack for plants especially the cactus varieties! I hope you get some fruit and we see a night photo of the blooms! 🙂
