This cactus has produced a bud back at a joint instead of at the end where all of the others have had their blooms. This plant is a piece from my mother-in-law's plant given to me by my sister in law. My other one got root rot one of those wet summers and it died before I could get a cutting off of it so I was really happy to have it replaced with this one.
A couple of 'no reply' bloggers have asked about patterns for the dishcloths. I'm not intending to put them on my blog. Some are purchased patterns, some shared by friends. I have an email link in my profile and another on my right side bar so if you don't have a link for me to reply to you in your comment, please email me if you want an answer.
