Barrel cactus flower

This is a closer view of the flower in the crown of the barrel cactus that I showed yesterday.  Sometimes these cacti are called golden barrel cacti, and this photo shows why.  Their  flowers are golden, but so are the spikes.

Barrel cacti are usually about the size of a basketball.  They often grow in partial shade at the base of larger plants, although we have a cluster of them the get full sun and they do well.

We we have photos of Costa Rica posted this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

The flowers of this cactus have spikey petals to match the spikes on the plant. said...

At least it is easy to see these thorns and stay away from them, unlike the cacti that seem to sprawl out and get in one's way.

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
up losing months of hard work due to no backup.

Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the
-Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?

Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would check this?
IE still is the marketplace chief and a good part of other people will leave out your excellent writing because
of this problem.

I do not leave a response, but I looked at some of the responses on "Barrel cactus flower".
I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it just me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks look like they are left
by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to
post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of all your social networking pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

I think that everything said made a lot of sense.
However, consider this, what if you wrote a catchier post title?
I ain't saying your content isn't good, but suppose you added something that grabbed folk's attention? I mean "Barrel cactus flower" is kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post headlines to get people to click.
You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about
everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
