Bishop’s Cap blooms
Short post this go-round, just a couple of photos of the Bishop’s Cap cactus I bought this spring in Truth or Consequences, NM.
As you can see, it bloomed. In fact, there were a couple of blooms before this capture, and I missed photographing them because it turns out they remain open only one day. Fleeting in the extreme.
The very next day the formerly yellow blooms have closed up and are now reddish in color.
Sticking with the theme of blooms past their prime, here are two bonus photos of sunflowers in decline. Because – hey! – being in decline is the natural state of all individual living things (eventually), so we may as well embrace it.
Not to put too gloomy of a perspective on things.
