The flower is not that of a cactus 😉
You can’t just leave it at that, Herman! What is it? As it was surrounded by cacti in my parents’ yard, I thought it was. I’d love to know what it is.
Part of the picture (right side) might be the spines of a cactus (a bit blur) but the flower is (looks alike) one of a bulb…
It’s not a bulb and I think it’s a cactus, but I don’t know for sure.
Herman, I think I’ve finally tracked it down. It’s a red yucca: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/ornamentals/nativeshrubs/hesperaloeparviflor.htm.
What a relief to finally know! I guess we were both wrong. 🙂
Thank you. I learned something this morning. I know many yuccas but not this one. I’ll have to ask a friend in Texas for some seeds now! 😀
Your use of a shallow depth-of-field gives the impression that the wind is blowing and the leaves of grass are gently moving. Well done, Janet.
Thanks, Allan. Full disclosure…I used an editing option in Picasa, Focal Zoom,to get the effect. The leaves of the plant weren’t actually blowing and the flower stem leaned that direction. But I loved the effect and I’m glad you like it, too.
Thanks for the info, Janet. Your editing techniques turned this into a beautiful image.
Thanks so much, Lena.
Thanks very much, Raewyn.
