Cactus blooms

Most weekends the San Diego Floral Association and San Diego Botanical Foundation hosts a flower show and plant sale in Balboa Park. Last weekend the featured flower was epiphyllum, shown above. After the show exhibitors were handing out these beautiful blooms to anyone walking by. Upcoming shows will feature bromeliads, cactus & succulents, ferns and a release of 1,000 butterflies. Happy Sunday!

These are beautiful blooms; you are so lucky to live in an area where you are surrounded by so much beauty and the chance, every week-end, to see beautiful flowers. The photo is wonderfully colourful!

I have the same plant at home! But mine is blooming in November, besides its name is "cactus de Noël" (=Christmas cactus).
