The blooming has begun!

My many potted cacti seem to be exploding with buds these days. 
Here are a few of the bloomers from this past weekend.

And this last one is not in bloom, but it is a new purchase- called a Star Cactus from Mexico.  It captured my interest with its unique shape and speckled pattern. I had to add it to my collection.  I can't wait for a bloom!

Happy Cactus Monday!  For more prickly posts please pop on over to Teri's Painted Daisies.

It is such great fun and visual enjoyment to walk around and see all these wonderful blooms. I always put my camera in my pocket for these wonderful scenes to take back to Wisconsin.
