Last night, we had five new cactus flowers bloom. Although, due to unfortunate circumstances, no timelapse footage was available, Cactus Cam Productions was on the scene just as the flowers opened. Come with me on a journey….into the cactus flower!
This post contains detailed close-up photos of cactus reproductive organs and may not be suitable for small weeds and other plants that have yet to flower.
To re-cap, we’ve had 16 flowers so far this year, in groups of 1, 1, 5, 4, and now 5. I count at least a half dozen more buds. In 2008, we’ll have to have some sort of cactus flower betting pool.
Anyway, on to the stunning images…
And now….the feature presentation.
