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.
