This next one surprised me. I didn't see the bud forming and suddenly a sweet little pink flower. I noticed more buds growing so there should be quite a show coming soon.
I happened to catch this one right as it was opening...I plopped myself down and took a few minutes out of my day to watch part of the process. This picture was taken later after it had fully opened.
One of my first cactus purchases, this Parodia has been a reliable bloomer- nearly year round.
The next two pictures are not the same cactus. I have two of these- different labels but they look the same. They both bloomed this weekend.
Happy Cactus Monday! To see other prickly themed artwork and photography please visit Teri's Painted Daisies and join in the fun!
