A Face Only A Mother Could Love

A Face Only A Mother Could Love

Huernia Zebrina 'Magniflora'
I can't tell you how excited I was to walk outside and see these awesome blooms on this succulent. I bought this plant at my Cactus and Succulent society plant show and sale. I had no idea what the blooms would look like. I was so surprised to see these blooms. It had 3 of them and they are so strange. I have seen other succulent lovers
Huernia blooms on Flickr but I have never owned one myself. I am so excited!

Sorry I have been missing. I came down with an upper respiratory infection two weeks ago and even with antibiotics it won't go away. May have to go back to the
Dr. tomorrow. The coughing is just wearing me out!!! I think it turned into Bronchitis.


My first Huernia bloom!

By the way....Happy Cactus Monday to everyone! I will try to catch up with everyone's goings on as soon as I can. A lot has been going on this summer in SSS garden and the Suter family. It may take me forever to get everyone caught up. I have started many posts but never finished them. I will though.


I'm Giddy!!!!

Hope every one's summer is going well. Have a wonderful week!

And remember:

It's Another Beautiful Day!

WOWWWW. What an incredible flower. I've been wanting one of these forever but I've seen one in a nursery. I love the head, too. Where did you buy it?

I got it at the Carmichael cactus and succulents society show and sale this summer. I had no idea the flower would look like this. Very thrilled Gherard. When it gets bigger I will give u a cutting if u want.
