It'sone of the things I love about cactus. Probably because it's a bit like me before my morning coffee.The flower comes after coffee.

It is indeed an unusual yet beautiful plant and partnership!

I love Mo's comment!

Is this one of those gorgeous flowers that only blooms for one day?

I agree with brattcat - perfect title!! He is a snarly little thing isn't he. Or since it flowers, is it a she? Are there he and she cacti? Oh, now my head hurts. :) Happy Monday!

Yes, it's true! You know I have a lot of these beasts at home! :-)

Agreed, the title fits this post and agreed I look like that before my coffee, too. LOL.

Mo said it, except in «Louis'» case, the flower is a dandelion...
