Thanks SpikeyMike - I too loved all of my fellow competitors' pictures - so I thought we'd go on a different type of theme for March.
My theme is "Pattern" - so I'm thinking the lovely mathematical shapes which our cacti have in their ribs, between tubercles, in the spine patterns, in the spine distribution, the scales on the flower buds, the petal arrangements, etc. So I'm not so much interested in species or genera --- just "patterns".
Continuing a journey of discovery as I grow cactus seeds and offsets, and discover all kinds of wonderful plants in Cactus Nurseries. Just love Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums and Gymnocalycium .... and....and .... now discovering Rebutia (thought I'd never bother having lost one a winter ago) and Sulcorebutia and Aylostera .... from where did those Echinocereus plants arrive?
