    Mum gave me a few 'branches' of this crazy cactus years ago. About 2 months ago tiny pentagonal buds appeared. Finally one has exploded into this beautiful star of brown and yellow. Intricate and amazing. Again nature blows me away with utter fascination.

      Cool DOF alright. Just taken a photo of such a plant today and my friend had to take it outside as it doesn't smell that great. :)

      Hi Jane, chrstn_jnttnz told me about your cactus and it was my plant that she took a pic of. It has an unopened flower so now I'm hoping it will look like yours!
