This was my surprise this morning. I didn't even know the cactus would flower. Okay, so I obviously don't know much about cactus. This plant was given to me by a friend of my hubby's. He has them all over his yard. This one was still in a pot and looking kinda sad. I have always wanted one for my yard so he said that I could have this one. He's been here for about a year now and has grown so much. When I went out this morning, this is what I found! Just one lone little flower but it's so pretty. We recently moved him from the place we originally planted him to a spot closer to the road in front of our house. I think maybe he's just showing off. lol
Well, my no so surprised is that I am not happy with first soap sack attempt. I've already re-written the pattern and am ready to get another one OTN. I had to re-do my decreases for the bottom. I hate pointy and it is pointy. Looks more like a cone shape which is not a favorite of mine. I would prefer it be more flat. Maybe the second time will be the charm....I sure hope so.
