What an absolute stunner!ReplyDelete
OMW That's stunning, Arija. Thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting my blog and sharing the tip about storing the passwords and usernames. It's good to be back! Blessings, Jo xxReplyDelete
I used to have many cacti but not sure I ever had one of these. My favourites were the night-flowering varieties and remember sitting up on many evenings waiting for them to open up and display their unlikely beauty.ReplyDelete
That is a wonderful cacti flower. Looks similar to some poppies.ReplyDelete
First thing I said outloud was "That's a cactus flower?" Beautiful and stunning ♥ReplyDelete
We seldom see cacti in bloom here, but I have never even seen a photo like this one! Wow!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing this beauty Arija, glad you brought it home.ReplyDelete
Beautiful. Cactus have some wonderful flowers.ReplyDelete
That is a cracking flower - I know that some cactus flowers only last a few hours.ReplyDelete
The stumpy has his mouth open to eat a chunk of banana that had been dropped on him by our host when I was away getting my camera! Taken a month or more ago, I think he may not have been fully warm yet!

I love the orange highlights in the red, and the stigma is very fancy, it makes me think of a fancy starfish.ReplyDelete
Lovely and thanks for sharing. Have a great week ahead.ReplyDelete
Warm as a volcano!ReplyDelete
You had two special treats Arija ... going to the Farmer's Market and finding this delightful treasure. I'm sure it made your day.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! Cacti blooms are among the most beautiful.ReplyDelete

I spent some time in hospital Tuesday and Wednesday and so trying to make some visits, What a gorgeous colour of flower that is. Happy weekend with hugs~ReplyDelete
That is just beautiful Arija. The center reminds me of a Passion flower.ReplyDelete
