Can’t ever resist a cacti, or two, at local shows

I’m a sucker for cacti, no pun intended. There’s a flourishing Woking branch of the British Cactus & Succulent Society. I often see the Woking branch displays and sales table at local shows. I’ve admired their display at the Epsom Royal Show, and last weekend at the Surrey Show.

Yes, I did buy some cacti at the Surrey Heath Show, to replace those that I’ve lost. Now that my collection has increased, I think I need to join the Woking branch to access their expertise. I’m pleased to find that one of my small cacti has decided to bloom – think for the first time. It’s a Mammillaria carmenae ‘Red Fort’. A picture of which is below,
