Your banner says, look, enjoy, but do not touch. Great shot of the spines protecting the buds.

Great banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

And a slideshow of other cacti & plants during the bloom

Unfortunately, we couldn't get back out to see it fully open,
but hope to next year. Smiling
