Great picture!! So clear and crisp! You did a good job getting this picture. I just love these cactus but darn can't grow them in my zone 6. I would love a green house big enough to grow all the plants that I like and won't grow outside here in the winter.

The flower looks similar to my "lifesaver" only the "lifesaver" has a red inner ring, & looks just like a lifesaver candy. I've heard the flower is edible.
