Prickly flower

Quite a few of the succulents and cacti in my garden has been flowering lately being that time of the year.  This one doesn’t have what I would call regulation thorns, but rather long spiny ones.  The little pink flower looked soft to the touch although I wasn’t willing to venture a finger in between the spines to find out what it feels like.

  1. I find the forms of succulents quite fascinating! I get a total thrill when mine flower – so often the flowers are soft and delicate, in contrast to the prickly plants.
