From the Garden

My husband grows cacti for their unusualness, their beauty, their difficulty to grow, their uniqueness.  One of their bountiful qualities is the beauty of their flowers.  I was watering the patio plants and spied this one in full bloom from a distance in his shade area.  Here it is in the full sun.  It is so bright that the color looks a little washed out.
Here it is with me shading it.  You can see the color better and the wonderful centers.  Bees love this cactus.
