One Little Thing

Ferocactus wislizenii




Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back
and realize they were the big things.

It looks dangerous trying to touch the flower. I guess that's why the 'small print' seemed to read "ferocious" the first time I read the caption.

The colour of this bloom is so vibrant - I love it!

Thanks for the update on your husband. I hope all will be well. Thinking of you.

Cactus flowers have that intriguing combination of beauty and danger that appeals to the rebel in me. Anybody can grow a pretty rose, but rose thorns about as scary as a kitty's paws when compared to a lion's claws.

I just found out that Ferocactus comes from the Latin Aferox or fierce.
