Flower friday

Here in the desert, we don’t get many flowers except at the middle of April to the middle of May.

We’ll start off with the KPB (Kenzie Pi$$ing bush) which Kenzie used to fertilize with his wet fertilizer.

Then we have the golden torch cactus which flowers a few times a year

and the huge Argentine Giant (at least the flowers are giant)
