Beautiful close up, Steven! I love how you've got the shininess and colors of the petals. Where did you find this lovely little cactus?

16 Feb 2018 4:35am

@Elizabeth Buckalew: The Home Depot. But these are the real flowers. I took the fake ones off when I brought the cactus home. I don't know why they do that.
