I'll wear my pink dress...what about you? by 


A cactus with small, pink flowers like a crown…isn’t it beautiful? A miracle from nature! (In my garden: Gauteng, South Africa) Thanks to Maree Clarkson, I know the name now: Mammillaria albilanata

There are many different types, shapes, and sizes of cactus and succulent plants.
Cacti from desert areas are plump and spiny while cacti that originally grew in jungle areas are flat or thin and spineless.
Some cacti have leaves, and even flowers. For example, the pereskia, when full grown, looks like an orange or a grapefruit tree. The melocactus grows a cap on top at maturity, which later sprouts beautiful rosy-pink flowers.
Succulents are ideal plants for busy people since they need less humidity and water than most indoor plants and are very tolerant of variations in temperature.
These plants often feature thick, fleshy leaves that store water, and are constructed in such a way that they expose the least amount of surface to the sun and winds.
Many people find succulents to be of great beauty as well as an investment: the longer they grow the more magnificent they become.

Another beauty in my garden!
