It never ceases to amaze me how gorgeous the blooms of the cacti are JM..that's quite a collection you have, it must look spectacular if many of them bloom at the same time.

Very extreme. To get any blooms you must be a master at gardening. MB

Wow, that's beautiful. I have never seen it earlier so thanks for sharing.

That is a truly spectacular blossom, as pretty as some orchids I've seen (which is a high standard in my book!). You've done it justice in this shot. A very big "wow!"

Linda said...

Wow, this is gorgeous!

Sami said...

Beautiful J.M. I had never seen this plant.

Mother Nature rocks!

Hilde said...

wow, that's a jewel!!! I presume that succulents don't have flowers every year, so you must be very lucky for this opportunity!
wishing you a nice sunday, Hilde

Someone showed a similar flower on a blog and said that it stunk. Does this flower smell?

JM said...

@Joan Elizabeth: No, not at all.
