rebutia minuscula senilis

No doubt the most beautiful of cactus flower colors. Here is Trichocereus "poco" at 11,500 ft in the Andes. If you think it looks like a long ways down to the highway, you'd be right. A big climb for an old guy, but absolutely worth it.

Wow, talk about a tough choice. Well I really liked this C. fulgida flower - not as showy as many others, but I think the diminished nature of it makes it interesting:

Something a little different -- Aptenia cordifolia variegata

Catch a falling star--but don't try it with a cactus!
