I have to brag a little...





 

Can you believe this size of this epicactus flower?  It's the size of a dinner plate!  The plant is kind of ugly - a long gawky thing with fleshy, cactus-like leaves/stems.  But OMG, when those blossoms open - what a show!  The flower only lasts a couple days, then it's wait 'til next year.

Yes, it is a fabulous flower, Carol. Too bad is doesn't stay in bloom longer.

Oh my word, that is one huge bloom! Well worth the year long wait to see, and the colour, oh my the colour!

Amazing flowers! Naturally, a whole year in between blooms. But I think it was worth it. I really enjoy your art.
