We have a cactus identical to your middle photo in bloom on the patio of our Scottsdale home.

You photographed the bloom beautifully. Looks like a prickly group of plants.

These spiky cactuses look like proud of their beauty. I love the first one.

Sharon said...

Beautiful shots JM. I love how these cactus get a little crown of flowers when they bloom.

Lowell said...

Your plants and plant photography are so fine! In this case, they look a bit "sticky." These are not soft and cuddly plants, but best considered from a safe distance, right? :-)

i love the color of the flowers, and if I have to be honest, I love the color much more than the cactus

Virginia said...

Simply gorgeous! I gave up the cacti keeping only the succulents, but sometimes I think I was wrong...

cieldequimper said...

Instead of a crown of thorns, it's a crown of flowers, how wonderful! Happy weekend JM!

JM said...

@Virginia: Great news! :-) The INSIDE OUT Project in Lisbon was posted on January 17-22.

Kay said...

Beautiful, JM! I have seen fewer of this kind of cactus in bloom, probably because beavertail is more common in the wild where I have visited. These are simply gorgeous!

Halcyon said...
