At last the dragon fruit that hubby's friend gave him, about ten years ago, now bearing fruit, for the first time. It did bloom once before this but the flower dried up and drop off at bud stage. This time we get to watch it grow and taste the fruit. So precious, like watching my child grow. Hubby requested that I should snap a photo of it daily, to monitor. I just took photo of it when I see changes.
I didn't even get to see the flower at full bloom. The flower open up for just a few hours. Hubby saw the full bloom very early in the morning, on his way to work. By the time I water the plants later in the morning, the flower had shut close. Anyway, grateful that it bear fruits. Since we planted it in a pot, we had never change pot or add soil / fertilizer etc. Not easy to handle cactus with thorns every where.
It is worth the wait as the fruit is so sweet. Too bad there is only one fruit. Hope there will be more in the near future after it start bearing fruit. Thanks for reading and hope your plants grow well. Happy gardening.

There aren't many stray cats that hang around my backyard now a days except for Rusty and a female cat that look exactly like Rusty but smaller in size. We named her Princess. Recently this tom cat kept stalking Princess and he noticed that when Princess meow and I am around, I would give her some cat food.
Normally when he is around he have this particular loud meow like those male cats trying to impress a female cat during mating season but the minute he saw me, his meow sound changed immediately to a gentle baby meow begging for food. It always made me laugh every time when he change his meow sound. He sure learn fast how to impress me. Love his fur, nice spot just like the leopard.
I used to tell my sons that I adore animals like tiger, lion and leopard. Since there is no way I could get one as a pet, the law of attraction sent me a cat that look like this. It will do just fine for me. Thank you.
Thanks for reading and hope you love animals as much as I do.
