A couple of years ago, my sweet neighbor, Edith, gave me a few cacti to plant in the yard. I never knew you could plant cacti in an area that had freezing temperatures in the Winter. I have always liked cacti, so I was happy to plant them. When I saw how they dried up and looked rather pathetic during the Winter months, I figured they were goners. Much to my surprise, when Spring arrived they perked up and had new growth all over them. In late May, I noticed this different looking growth on one of them and hoped it could possibly be a flower. Sure enough! The other day it opened up to this beautiful yellow flower. What a pleasant surprise!
