Hi,
Whoops - this is too late really, but I thought I would put it up anyway. A is for Anonymous, some sort of Echinopsis hybrid, but I don't know which, although I did wonder if it could be 'Anastasia'. If anyone knows I would love to find out.

I don't know which one it is but it is stunningly gorgeous. Shame you're too late for the competition. :wink:

Thanks for these great entries, you have all given me quite a task as there are so many worthy winners. I loved the Agaves, Astrophytums, Aeoniums plus Geri's Avonia, Sheila's anonymous and Chris L's triple A historic photo. But the winner is Nobby's Austrocactus, as I love the colour of the flowers, it's a great photo. So over to you Nobby for September's topic.
