Photo Of The Week
My husband came home one day with a bunch of little cactus, and the one in the photo is most interesting.
And I went out yesterday morning to find it in full bloom, sure glad I did!!
These flowers are all very similar in structure – funnel shaped, with
hairy/wooly scaled floral tubes which give rise to hairy, globular fruit filled with a soft, mushy pulp.
The flowers seldom last more than a single day and may be
diurnal or nocturnal depending on the species.
