en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echinocactus_grusonii

"Echinocactus grusonii, popularly known as the Golden Barrel Cactus, Golden Ball or, amusingly, Mother-in-Law's Cushion, is a well known species of cactus, and is endemic to east-central Mexico.

  

It is rare and critically endangered in the wild, where it is found near Mesa de Léon in the state of Querétaro, and in the state of Hidalgo.[1] The population was critically reduced in the 1990s, by the creation of the Zimapán Dam and reservoir in Hidalgo.[1] The cactus grows in volcanic rock on slopes, at altitudes around 1,400 metres (4,600 ft)."

Golden barrel cactus surround a barbary fig at Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior, Arizona.

 

As always, thanks so much for taking a look.

An interesting mix of color in this cluster of cactus and wildflowers.

I could not pass up the small cactus, smaller than an egg, but the geometric of the spikes was gorgeous!!!!

Eigentlich mag ich keine Kakteen, weil sie so stachelig sind....aber bei richtiger Behandlung haben sie wunderschöne Blüten....manchmal...

Einen schönen Mittwoch euch allen!
