You probably think I’m crazy but I am excited to have a new pad on my cactus, I started with one pad 2 years ago, last year I got a new pad and this year I got another one. I know for some people this is just weed as it grows very well where it is native but I live in Belgium and that is not exactly cactus paradise.
I am pretty pleased with it.
THIS WAS HOW I LOOKED WHEN WE FIRST MET
I GOT A PUP LAST SUMMER
AND THIS IS ME NOW.
I’ll get a new big pot soon and then I’ll have my picture taken again. I wonder how many pups I’ll get this year !
Have a great week !!
Remember the baby bud on my opuntia ? The one I bought in France last year ?
This is mum last year in France.
This is mum and the little baby bud on June 23rd this year.
This was taken a few days later on July 1st

And this was taken today October 27 th. So in 4 months time the bud grew bigger than mum ! Amazing hey !!
Have a great weekend all and thanks for visiting !
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 !!
REMEMBER THIS PICTURE ? TAKEN 23 RD OF JUNE 2018
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 !
