Best of a Bad Lot

Gymnocalycium schickendantzii
Giant Chin


This Giant Chin bloomed today--must like the hot and humid weather of monsoon.  This summer has been pretty nonproductive in my garden, a few blooms here and there, but none nice enough to post. I must need to fertilize more. These flowers are the nicest of the season so far.

Hellllooooo!!! Nice to see you! These blooms are really gorgeous! I remember you love your gymno's too, right??? I just love the dainty translucency of these!!! Hope all is well in your world. I think of you quite often, Aiyana.

Hi Aiyana. I'm glad you are still posting on your blog. I have never seen Gymno schickendantzii with yellow flowers before. They are gorgeous. Thanks for showing us!

They are really lovely Aiyana. I'm constantly amazed that something that looks like a torture device can have such pretty flowers. :)

Very beautiful. I love how generous these plants are when it comes to flowers :) You must give it good care when they look like this : )
