The flower box was one Leon built from some old scrappy looking wood. It had a rough finish on one side - so we put that side out - it will look better when weathered. I think now it looks a bit too new - but give it several months.
This picture is not the flowers in front of our new "Old" wagon - but close to the first wagon we got several years ago. However, the cactus we put in the new flower box is the same as these. It will take a couple of years before we can expect blooms as profusely as this puts out each year. It is similar to what is known as prickly pear cactus - I suppose a close cousin - the flowers in the one we have has the orange center and the pears are green...whereas the actual prickly pear has a solid yellow flower and the pears are red. At least from what I have been able to find in checking out these cacti.
One thing for sure there are always changes going on in our yard. Like in decorating in the house - an item could be in room "A" one day and the next day or so be placed in room "B". That is how it may be with our flower garden decorations - keep them moving around for a change in the way things look.
Everyone have a good week - enjoy the blessings provided by God and give him the thanks for such.
