Cactus Blossom

I can't top Nords photos of his pineapple crop (did you eat that thing yet?), but I found this growing in the rocks next to my driveway today.

Not a chance...no dentists within 10 miles (and the plant is only about four inches tall).

Bloom in the morning, gone when the sun sets.

Re: Cactus Blossom

Nice picture. I have a lot of cacti and hope to get a bloom as nice as that one this year.
I think I need to fertilize them more often to get the blooms.
