Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette

It's easy to miss seeing a cactus in flower. They don't last long, a day maybe. I noticed a bud forming the other day and knew I'd have to keep an eye on it if I wanted to capture it with my camera.

Happy Cactus

I really love the salmon orange color

Another day and it will shrivel up and eventually fall off

It flowered earlier this summer too, produced several flowers in fact. This must be its last gasp before fall and winter set in. It's not hardy, so it will have to be overwintered in the greenhouse.
