This little plant surprised me with a lovely orange flower (my favorite color).
You can see the top of the plant behind the flower.
Such a little thing, such a large flower.
I love when the flowers cover the plant itself. That is one pretty flower.
Nice show it put on for you.
Thanks for sharing your pic. I'm so jealous looking at all these pokey plants blooming. I got my first bloom about a week ago. Unfortunately my camera is busted and I missed capturing what I waited all winter for.
Jen, I'm going to post a photo of echinocereus pentalophus that just blew me away with it's gigantic flowers and perhaps you will enjoy it too.
MRbrownthumb, I know what you mean about missing a photo. We wait all year and it's not too bad if there are several blooms or they hang on for a day or so, but that one time bloomer can be such a disappointment when missed.
Thanks for both your comments
Wow,a neat shade of orange!
