Green Thumb Sunday

My very first Green Thumb Sunday post was a hard decision until I noticed this little guy- I just love the shadings of orange and deep yellow on these blooms!
Aren't these flowers just gorgeous? When I snapped the picture last night they were just aglow in the light from the setting sun!

I believe this little cactus is a Parodia, at least that is what was marked on the container when I purchased it

With June here though, everything will all start slowing down with the summer heat- If anyone has any suggestions for helping them survive please comment- I haven't been gardening too long and I welcome suggestions!

Welcome to GTS! The cactus flower is wonderful. I have some posted too. Stop by if you have interest in desert gardening--that's all I write about!

What a vibrant colour - I have never seen a cactus flower like that before.
