A Race To The Finish

The week before Sailfest I boldly exclaimed "Big Cacti and Cacti Corey are in a race to the finish to see who's going to blossom first this summer. It's going to be epic around here."

You know who I'm talking about, right? Big Cacti and Cacti Corey. Two of our favorite children from odd backgrounds who continually try do outdo eachother with their exponential growth, and their respective perfect pink flowers.

July 8
This year Big Cacti started out strong . . .

July 8

. . . with blossoms #1 and #2 . . .

Cacti Corey #1!

July 17

Annnnnnd Cacti Corey #1 and #2. Can you stand how gorgeous?

July 18

But wait, Big Cacti will not be denied . . .

Big Cacti? Did you hear me? Will you not be denied??

Big Cacti's blossom #3 is on his back side, and is a night-bloomah this time around. Who knew?

July 19

Oh but look, Cacti Corey is trying to take over the lead, with the sheer brilliance of her #2. . .

I thought we'd have a clear winner by now, almost two weeks later, but they're both still going strong.

There's a reason we never leave our deck.
