One of our cactuses has just flowered. This is a Mamillaria and its golden yellow blossoms are quite magnificent.

This post is part of the Nature Footsteps Blo Ma meme.


  1. Lovely Nick, it is embarrassing, but i haven't seen a cactus picture up close, aside from the Epiphyllum oxypetalum, haha!

  2. you are so lucky. I love cactus flowers. This have a lovely color. Not that strong. :)
    Thanks for giving me the name of that little blue one.

  3. Are you familiar with Georgia O'Keefe? She painted large flowers during the 30s and 40s before cameras could do as you have done. This flower reminds me of her art.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
