This week in the Death Valley Shack

If I have said it once, I'm sure I'll say it again.
When it comes to flowers,
it is hard to beat a cactus in bloom.
This is a Lobivia famatimensis, native to mountainous Argentina at elevations of 9000', forms globular stems to 6" in height.
Can you believe that color.........
Note that a single flower is about the size of the plant. This cactus is about 4" wide and 5 1/2" tall. Unbelievable!
