Cacti flowers are always amazing I suppose they have to be to attract insects in their natural habitat ..

Thank you Thorneyside :)

That's true Amy, they are short of water so the flowers can't last long, and therefore have to be pollinated quickly.

I agree with everyone, I like the colour, pearly with a slight purplish tinge.
