After the rain in the garden

After the rain with a glimpse of the sun: 1; Boophone haemanthoides 2; Boophone haemanthoides (detail) 3; Cotyledon sp. 4; Ferocactus sp. 5; mesembranthaceae sp. 5; white flowering Iris. The Boophone haemanthoides (“Kwaslelie’) originates from Namaqualand and is fairly rare compared to the more common Boophone disticha.

Fish hook

The ferocactus, also named fish hook cactus originates from Mexico. This specie has pink flowers which is seemingly fairly rare. Usually ferocacti have red/orange flowers.

OUCH!!!

The Rainbow Nation Cactus

At last; after years of trial and error, hard labor, blablabla (etc.), I succeeded in breeding a new imaginary cactus specie. May I proudly present the first Rainbow Nation Cactus ever. I named it Ferocactus Mandela.

Ouch!

This is NOT a “Mother’s in law cushion” ….
