Mexican Fence Post Flower

Here is the bud of the flower from the Mexican Fence Post. I think it is very interesting and is a pretty color and texture.  

The photo below shows the flower when it opens for a very brief period of time.

The photo yesterday showed the tall Mexican Fence Post and at the base you could see black items, which are these flowers when they fall to the ground.

I will be posting lots more cactus and flowers over the next few weeks because of all of the cacti currently in bloom. If you would like to see other interesting cactus and flowers, click the labels "Cactus" or Flowers" and enjoy!

Another beautiful but short lived cactus bloom. They are such beauties.

Interesting to see the bloom and how it looked before. You have to be quick to catch them.

They are lovely! I have a cactus that has never bloomed for me...and I have had it over 8 years....
