Thursday Special


Densely packed miniature cacti on a market stall in Barcelona give an impression of a bejewelled tapestry fading into the distance.

    Love the vibrant colour in this shot Jude. It is a dreary, cold, rainy day here, seeing this was like a little bright light!

    Ahh they’re so pretty 🙂

  6. Every time I see cactus I realise again why people become obsessed collectors. These are as spectacular as tulips any day.

    The very first time I witnessed such cacti in bloom I thought the flowers were hand made paper!

      They do look unreal (??)

  10. They look delightful – I love the bold colours.

    Beautiful, honeybun! 🙂 🙂 You’d be in raptures at the Algarve countryside right now. Carpets of wild flowers and hills chock a block with cistus. But, oh my poor feet! Misjudged the distance today 😦

      Sounds delightful, except for the sore feet.

  12. Bejeweled indeed! Cactus flowers – so delicate and so well protected. Look but don’t touch 🌵

  13. Love these little cacti. The flowers always look a bit “fake” to me

      I think that too!
