Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Fire Chief Greets the Day
For months now, we've been monitoring Fire Chief, the cactus with the spectacularly orange flowers, to see when he -- for some reason, we decided the plant was male -- was going to bloom. Last week I worried that it might never happen, since the buds had looked ready for a long time with no results. So, when we walked outside this morning, it was wonderful to see that his hard work had finally paid off:

It doesn't get much better than that in the realm of flora. We're very proud of him.

The flowers are only at their peak for one day, too, so it was important to document today's extravaganza!

You can thank him! I bet you guys saw Fire Chief during your visit, the one I sadly missed. But you probably didn't think such a little plant could be so magically transformed.
