New Purchase

While shopping in Ikea, I spotted this small round cactus. Looking more closely, I saw very tiny pink buds trying to emerge. Nothing more was happening in that sunless, noisy environment, so I rescued it. Now at home for only 5 days, this is what happened. At night the buds close up and sleep, then in the morning they open to soak up sunlight. It feels like I have a new pet, but I don't want it in my lap!

Very sweet! My grandmother used to buy "dead" plants for a quarter or less at WalMart and revive them. She had beautiful plants. I can kill an artificial house plant.
