<<The phrase stop and smell the roses is an admonition to slow down and enjoy life, to take the time to savor the beauty around you, to relax. The expression stop and smell the roses came into use in the 1960s and is a rephrasing of a sentiment found in an autobiography written by the golfer Walter Hagen: “Don’t hurry. Don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” This passage was soon paraphrased as stop and smell the roses.>>

Some time ago I was given a small cactus
about 7 cm high, it had a red hat.
A kitten voted him to the floor several times.
I put him outside my window in a porcelain cup
as a planter.
Well, there he became thin and grew a lot.
Today he is 50 cm. tall ( he no longer has the
red hat.)
I do not know what mutation gave this result.
