When Cacti and succulents flower they delight

I’ve a small collection of cacti and succulents which adorn the window sill in our conservatory. They all get an outing onto the patio table for a feed and watering on warm sunny days. I tell them it’s their day out – a short holiday. My knowledge about them is sparseĀ – as it is about much else in life too.

Some were acquired at last year’s Egham Royal Show from Woking Cacti Society’s stall, or was it last years Surrey Heath Show, can’t recall. Anyway, the acquired Aeonium gomerense is putting out a flower. The flower head is shooting up, I’ve no idea how tall the flower stem will grow, or what the eventually flowering will look like. It’s one of the delights of owning cacti and succulents.

Two photos, the Aeonium on the left, and the other from a Woking Cacti Society stall at the Egham Royal Show.
