Beauty for Just a Day

Many people don't make the association that thorny cacti can also be beautiful, blooming plants. This particular beauty is such an example ~ it blooms for just one day. The flower is fabulous magenta and orange with an iridescent sheen. And it's the size of a feather duster!

  1. I recently turned those planters in the front yard into a succulent garden and the cacti and succulents have been blooming like crazy. I love it!
