I have some beautiful flowers in my garden at the moment which isn’t bad for a brown thumb like me.
The large red flower is from a cactus type plant that would have a very difficult to say, and even harder to spell botanical name no doubt but I’ve always know it as a strap cactus as it’s “branches” look like prickly, thick ropes. It flowers once a year and I think it survives well for me because it doesn’t need much water. (I have a bad habit of forgetting about watering plants). The flowers don’t have any smell and as you can see are quite beautiful.
The sweet pea plant just popped up in the garden bed and I just left it alone as plants live longer when I don’t touch them. I’ve already mentioned I have a brown thumb not a green one. 🙂
