The Queen in the Garden

Hi,

One more cactus is flowering and this sort of flowering is common to this species of the so called mammilaria family

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammillaria

Thanks for dropping by.

Hi Jochen,

That is right and more interesting is the fact that not all the existing cactii in this area do flower at the same time. Nearly all year around we have the cactii flowering. Each species at a different time of the year.

Hi Alexandra,

You being a well known flower connoisseur here as expected the crown has lot more flowers now and still some buds have not developped.
