Wonderful photos! Cactus flowers are so different from cactus to cactus - and it is amazing how these plants can grow such beauty!

These are all lovely, Saxy, but the delicate color of the first one just slayed me.

I always scroll all the way to the bottom of your blog because it gives me the opportunity (excuse)to revel in your music. Love the squirrel and lady bug photos. We have very few black squirrels in Nebraska, so they intrique me. The cactus photos are gorgeous.

I never see anything like these pretty flowers where I live. So to me, they are quite exotic. Thanks for sharing.

Prickly pears grow everywhere. They are amazing. Arizona, Cape Cod, Florida -- we have a bunch in our front yard -- but they don't have any needles ... or just very fine ones.

Would love to have those cactus. They don't require maintenance and they make good fence against the intruders. That's what I did in one of the places we lived and the naughty children in our neighbourhood did notice of my motive. Clever kids they were!

Anyhow, how beautiful they can be? I mean the flowers!

Having to think about it, I've not seen blooms on cactus live before even though my late granny had lots of them. They're beautiful :)
Happy Monday!!!

What beautiful set of Cacti. They are so rare, and even if they thrive so well here in Philippines, I've not seen as elegant looking as these.

BTW, I love the new header again.

More lovely photos! The first one looks a little like a rose, except the texture of the petals is different.
