Isn't it Wonderful?? Makes me want to re-think my idea of not wanting plants with thorns! That one may be thorny but it's sure a Beauty!

My favorite plant I have outside in a pot is a cactus with long thorns. Check out her constant blooms.

That is very pretty Gail. Does it have a name? Neat cactus ... the leaves don't even look like cactus leaves and the flower resembles a camellia. I love pink so I really like that one! Look at all those buds!
