This year, I have been a lot of experiences with plants, and one of them it's with cactus. I bought a package with some cactus seeds, I think it had 20, and none one grew! I had all the conditions for them to grow, and not even one seed grew. But it was the only faillure, besides the peppermint seeds, that happened. And this year I've been collecting some cactus. Since kid I love cactus, my father has a huge collection of them. And we have a lot of cactus on our garden outside. Two of them I brought from the Andersen's House in Porto when I went there to an Illustration Workshop, and we did an visit tour to the garden. But this is the first year I actually I'm looking for them, buying, and planting in beautiful vases. This is my first with flowers. They open when it's day and close when it's dark.
We are already in May! As we say " April Showers bring May Flowers", and in fact it's true! The rain stopped, finally, and the weather it's warming up so much that I already changed my wardrobe from Winter to Spring/Summer! And if we are in May, it's Pink May! So has the first post of April, this will be also a flower from one of my favorite trees in our garden , Magnolia. This one precisely it's Magnolia × soulangeana, an hibrid between two chinese Magnolias. See here a pattern about Asiatic culture that I love? My favorite it's white, but we have a pink one. And when it blossoms it's beautiful!
Pheww.. this is the last photo from this Lemon April. It's was difficult to find something yellow. I probably have already said this, but yellow it's for sure not my favorite color, so I'm normally not atracted to something yellow.
This is a Keychainm from a perfume I had some years ago. In the beginning it had the smell from the perfume, but now it's missing. It's a flower that keeps my car keys.
