Prickly flower

Quite a few of the succulents and cacti in my garden has been flowering lately being that time of the year.  This one doesn't have what I would call regulation thorns, but rather long spiny ones.  The little pink flower looked soft to the touch although I wasn't willing to venture a finger in between the spines to find out what it feels like.

  1. I wouldn't stick my finger in there either - very pretty though!

  2. It's so delightful to see your cactus blooming while we're getting ready for the cold of winter.

  3. I find the forms of succulents quite fascinating! I get a total thrill when mine flower - so often the flowers are soft and delicate, in contrast to the prickly plants.
