Pretty red cactus flowers on a dull Wednesday

Wednesday. Hump day. Middle of the week doldrums.

Nothing better to cheer myself up than photographing the rebutias in bloom on the front porch.

The cactus with the green stems is Rebutia krainziana aka Rebutia marsoneri var. krainziana. The hairy white dude is Rebutia albopilosa.

  1. There's a Rebutia at the Huntington that seems to bloom year round. Every time we go there it's blooming. Yours are lovely!
