Beautiful! Cactus flowers are always so much bigger and lusher than one would ever expect from a spiny, leafless plant.
Wow. Nice plant. Nothing like that around here at the moment. Obviously, hers was protected from hail damage!
Beautiful flowers, beautifuls colors. I am still hopeful to be able to watercolor them one day...
Desert plants give the prettiest flowers, probable because surviving is such a struggle.
When I was a kid, I had a little bitty cactus that my mom bought me at Woolworth's, I think. It was shaped like this one, and I was shocked when a red flower showed up on it one day. I was a kid. I didn't know a cactus could bloom.
