The little guy has 5 buds this year, and even the recent hard freeze we had here in Tucson, doesn't seem to have bothered it. I like that in a plant!

Blooms for Thanksgiving
This little cactus bloomed again this year, for Thanksgiving week, just as it did last year. I'm not sure of the variety. I thought it was a Ferocactus latispinus but someone who knows much more than I suggested it might be Biznaga de Dulce or Ferocactus macrodiscus. I don't really care...to me it is my Thanksgiving cactus...one of the few cactus that bloom for me this time of year, and one of my favorite blooms.
