Today's Flowers #18

I don't know if I'm too late for Today's Flowers. I don't know if it's a Sunday or Monday thing. But, since I wanted to post these anyway I'm doing it as a Today's Flowers. This is a Mammillaria Geminispina, a cactus with a pretty little pink flower. It orginates from Central Mexico.

I thought that was snow on the cactus. Very pretty. I think Today's Flowers starts on Sunday. Doesn't matter, glad I got to see this flower.

Lovely! It's almost Christmas like.

The posting time for the meme seems to get earlier and earlier - it was up by 1:00pm EST this week! :)

I've seen these at the Desert Botanical Garden here in Phoenix. Your shots are lovely--especially the one with the bee!

I like the cactus. That is neat looking. When I lived in Las Vegas, I had lots of cactus growing in my yard.

Love fuschia color. These are cool macros. Particularly like the white "needle cotton puffy parts". Thanks for the background on the flower. I LOVE learning new info. (Wish something was blooming here.)

That's a cool cactus and it was really thoughtful of you to shoot it with the bee...Thomas

Thats a really nice looking cactus. I like how it is mostly white which contrasts nicely with the pink flowers. And cool capture of the bee polinating the flower.
