Two Friendly and Charming Cacti

Is this the Face that Launched a Thousand Ships??
Mammillaria brauneana in bloom: MR 2014
Cactus flowers in winter always make me smile. But if flowers aren't your thing, how about a distinctive hair style?
Cephalocereus senilis: "Cousin It"- MR 2014
I love Cousin It's funky side-cowlick! Which denizens of your garden are making you smile this week?


  1. Two great plants Marla. I actually like the mamm the best. I always seemed to get stuck by the hairy sorts, as I always forgot there were spines under that hair! duh!
    The denizens in my garden are all like popsicles :( We have only had two days above freezing in the past 20, Our high temperature predicted for tomorrow is 16 F.
    Wow, bring on Spring!

    1. Bob, I'm so sorry you've had such an icy winter, it's been dreadful up there! I hope spring comes soon to you all. I forget the spines on my fuzzy cacti, too, sometimes, but they are so endearing that I forgive them immediately for their rudeness....
