A Few Big Blooms



I saw a few cactus blooms when I was at the garden over the weekend.  It's getting late for most cactus but some hang on and bloom later.  Above is a bloom on the toothpick cactus.  This one seems to get random blooms all year long.  It's a huge cactus and it blooms a lot in the spring but when summer comes I still see one or two blooms every time I visit.


To the left is a bloom on one of the night blooming cactus.  This is one that has big blooms, about 8 inches across.







These smaller pink blooms were on a hedgehog cactus.  They look like they are made of silk, don't they?
