Cactus Flowers

As I was taking pictures of some cactus flowers earlier this year, I was struck anew (and it hurt), by the contrast of the fragility of the flower and the sturdiness of the plant.   I've always liked seeing cactus flowers bloom, and always felt special when I got to see them, when we used to live in a desert climate, you were lucky to see them bloom after a brief rain, but since I moved to Florida, I've seen a lot of cactus blooming.  I guess you just have to be there when it's blooming time.   At any rate I thought I would share a few pictures here.

The variety of flowers on cactus is amazing.  From the delicate to the sturdy.    I hope you enjoy looking at these as well.
