BEST VIEWED LARGER
The Echinopsis are still doing their thing this Summer. There are a couple of varieties that will be blooming for the first time coming soon.
These beautiful flowers open at night and only last 24 hours, maybe 48 if the weather is cooler. You gotta catch them quick before they wilt away!
THIS one is showing off, making a spectacle of itself. There is absolutely NO color enhancement in this shot!!
