AN OLD BIRD'S EYE VIEW
How precious. Such a short-lived beauty!
Hey, Liz, this is a great series of pics. the really fascinating and frustrating thing about cacti of this kind is how long it takes for the flower bud to develop and finally open, and then how quickly it's all over. So these pics capture so well something which easily have been lost all too soon.
It's strange that such a spiny unattractive plant would produce such a beautiful flower. I love it.
Oh, I'm glad we got to see it!It is so beautiful - but I suppose it will not last long :-/Oh well, thanks to your piccies, Lizy, it has a wider audience to appreciate it!Thank you! :-)
Absolutely beautiful Liz.
