The blooms look like dandelion blooms, and even the seeds look like dandelion seeds! The contrast between the smooth green stem and the abrupt explosion of flowers is absolutely startling and magnificent.
And it appears to be sending out more buds.
The branching on the blooms is particularly interesting with its tentacle-y arms drooping slightly from the weight of the flower.
Here's hoping I don't kill it. I think I may not water this one at all during the winter unless I see the trunk shrink. It's so pretty. I don't want to turn it into disgusting mush for the compost pile.
Happy Cactus Monday!
