Some big flowers today

Tephrocactus geometricus is always good for a big flower at this time of year, occasionally two.

T. bonnieae has slightly smaller flowers, otherwise almost identical, but it produces quite a lot of them.

This other South American also has fairly big flowers. It is Lobivia, you guessed it, aurea.
