Well my cactus are just about done blooming for the season. I will get a hand full of Oputia blossoms by the week end and the E. vivpara var. arizonica is still pushing a few. The only thing I have to show for today is the second measly flush of blooms on my Echinocereus reichenbachii. :?

Nice Echinocereus and great to see flowers on the rammosissima - I never seemed to be in habitat at the right time to see flowers on that one.

I'm surprised at the Echinocactus there, didn't think it was quite zone 5b material :)
