Beautiful flower...but these spikes look dangerous.

Thank you both.
I can honestly tell you that since 1964, when I started to collect cacti, I have never had a cut from them. However, I have lost count of the number of times there's been blood running down my fingers from being stabbed by rose thorns ...
I always say roses are more dangerous than cacti.

Definitely, Hywel! Cecile Brunner tears my arms to ribbons if I'm not careful.

This flower looks like a miniature clematis - so pretty.

Beauty on the beast...a beautiful flower. The fluffy hair around the spines looks nice too.
