I Like Plants You Don't Have To Water.

My cactus is blooming! I figured I'd take a photo, because I haven't posted any in a while, and because I suddenly recall that, way back when I first got my camera and offered to take pictures of things for people, someone requested something along the lines of "local flora and fauna," and I never really complied with that. (Well, not unless the cats count, which I kind of doubt.) Anyway, here's some flora:

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what species that is, other than that it's some kind of cholla. (For those of you not used to Spanish-derived vocabulary, that's pronounced something like "choya.") Whatever it is, it's got very pretty purple flowers.
