I do like the Cactus flowers Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do too, their colors are always so bold!

All beautiful, but of course, I love the red the most (I think)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Thank you, Bonnie! That red is quite rich!
Aïe, ça pique ! Quelles épines !
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yep - not one to mess with, but they're pretty!

Definitely would want to stay away from those spines! I love the pristine ones in the first photo.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: For sure! Especially the cholla - the spines have barbs on the end so when you brush up against one they grab you and the whole ball comes off! Some call them jumping cholla - because it seems like the balls jump onto you. Strategic for the plant.. once you finally get it off of you, wherever the plant ball lands - it will sprout roots and grow a new plant! But extremely painful for us!

These cacti look just soo dangerous to be near!
When a cactus gets around to flowering it does it in style

That is a good defence.
The top photo is tops! The purple being stabbed repeatedly has a great effect. smile
Great lighting in the top shot, and delightful flowers in the centre, Cacti do tend to grow interesting flowers.
