This is my beautiful Zygocactus, I have had it for about 5 or 6 years, and each year it flowers 3 to 5 times, usually with around 3 to 4 dozen flowers. This is its third flowering this year and it is a 4 dozener. Hope you like it GrinGrinGrin

Many thanks for all your comments and votes on my "Volcanic Flow" and other images all gratefully received.

I must say that I was quite sure it was going to bomb.

Wonderful contrast between the red and green and so many opportunities to capture it
with all those flowerings.
