Cactus Monday

Happy Cactus Monday everyone!
I finally have a cactus to share! This one opened on Saturday and it is just stunning. I love this cactus. It is planted in my bbq planter. Thank You Cathy from Outside In for identifying this cactus as a Frailea-Grahliana!







Enjoy your day and don't forget to swing by and check out the other Cactus Monday participants at our hostess with the mostest Teri

Fantastic bloom!!!!!!! Isn't it amazing what a little cactus can do. I think I have painted this type of flower at one time. I'll have to go look. The colors are so delicate.

How tall and sturdy the stalk is for a small cactus. Thank you for taking the photos from different angles. The actual bloom is soooo beautiful and delicate! HCM, Judy

That is a very beautiful flower - I'm amazed at these fragile beautiful things coming out of prickly cacti. This is the first time I've checked out your blog - I really like your salvaged art, especially the bottle tree. I may have to get me one of those.
