Just had to post this one up. This is the first time I've seen a crested cactus bud. Next to a normal bud.
A Crested Cactus Bud!
I've seen a crested Agave bloom stalk too.
We had a crested bud that I saw developing but missed it opening but we had a second one that we did get a pic of . I will see if I can get the wife to find the pic of it open .
