What is this?
Every year since we’ve had this little guy, he’s produced even more flowers than the year before. When I noticed the little buds start to form this year, I decided to make a timelapse video of its blooming for all the world to see how beauty can come from even the most stumpy and prickly among us. Luckily for you, my timelapse video software also provides webcam functionality, so you can watch it bloom in real time!
The following are pictures of his mother that I took in Extremadura back in 2003 when she was blossoming. Marga’s grandfather chopped off a piece and gave it to us. So this is what we have to look forward to…
