Ten (10) weeks ago I looked like this ;
ME AND MY MUM
Now I look like this:
IN 10 WEEKS TIME I AM TALLER THAN MY MUM BUT I AM STILL A BIT SKINNY BUT THAT IS BECAUSE I AM NOT AN ADULT YET, RIGHT ? By the way, my name is opuntia ficus indica Burbank.
Have a great Sunday all and thanks for your visit !!

THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN ON JULY 1ST
THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN THIS MORNING JULY 17 TH !!
I must add that he is getting a lot of sun as we are having a long hot and dry Summer and hardly any rain, ideal for a cactus.
Yesterday we had a bit of rain, not nearly enough to help end the drought we suffer from at the moment. But I am happy with every drop that we get. We are not used to this kind of tropical temperatures , neither are the gardens over here so the gardens are suffering, a lot of leafs and flowers are burned from the sun.
Have a great day all and thanks for visiting !
I have a new disk on my opuntia indica Burbank !!! I bought this opuntia last year when we were on our holiday in France.
THIS IS HOW IT LOOKED LIKE WHEN I BOUGHT IT
JUST ONE WEEK AGO I NOTICED SOME GROWTH
SEE HOW MUCH IT HAS GROWN IN JUST ONE WEEK !!!!
I am so happy about it !!
Have a great week all ! Thanks for visiting.
When we were on vacation in the South of France we visited a few garden centers as that is something I really enjoy. And I found something I had been looking for for years.
OPUNTIA FICUS INDICA BURBANK SPINELESS
That is quite a mouthfull isn’ it ?! Some of you will think this is quite a common cactus and it is but for me he is special as he has no spines so the kids and the dogs can’t hurt themselves when they come too close to it. And they are usually sold as big plants as they can grow rather big, I never came accross one with just one leaf, as we have to take it home with us in the car. The dogs took a lot of space as they were travelling in a big bench. And I like small cacti and see how they grow.
AND HERE IT IS, STANDING HAPPILY (I HOPE) IN MY VERANDA.
Have a greate day and thanks for visiting !
