I realized there are multiple kinds of horse crippler cactus. Mom helped me identify this as Echinocactus horizonthalonius (the common and widespread subspecies), based on it having eight ribs. The flower closed in the sunshine today. Apparently it needs a second individual to make fruit, ie it’s self sterile (also known as self incompatible). Some kind friends brought us a big obsidian rock! I put it near the baby two leaf senna. I think the black and yellow will look very nice together. A small pokeberry growing in backyard. A Texas dandelion accidentally brought from home! Yay!
