Red Heads Can TOO Wear Pink!

They say redheads shouldn't wear pink, but my 'Red-Headed Irishman' cactus looks pretty good with pink flowers in his hair.

Mammilaria spinosissima 'Red-Headed Irishman' blooming up a storm!

He's the cutest thing in the greenhouse

I like him so much I went back to Home Depot and bought 5 more.

  2. Six prickly Irishmen in one greenhouse? That's half of "Twelve Angry Men." Are you going to name them after the actors in that movie? A few years ago, designers were all over the pink and red combination. You have a cutting edge greenhouse!

  8. Fantastic color combination! That is one fancy cactus, rivals any orchid.

  9. How cute, but it should be an Irish lady really with all those pink flowers. I love it.

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
