It is that time of year – when my zygocactus flowers. I just love these flowers – their outrageous colour, their intricate form, and the way they hang on the delicate fronds. Look at they sideways & they fall off.
Let me share some pictures with you:
after heavy rain that overflowed the gutters & flooded the courtyard – & everything in it. It must’ve been very heavy for the zygocactus to get wet, but I am not sorry. It did no damage & just added to their beauty.
& then the flowers, looking as though they dance or dive, in sunlight & shadow:
They are incredibly lovely, these flowers, coming from an almost ugly plant.
After this flowering, I will repot it and hopefully, next year, wherever I am, it will have even more flowers.
I hope you enjoyed this brief post 🙂
