  5. I love the extra-long stem on the cactus flower! It always amazes me to see such delicately beautiful flowers come from spiny structures.

  6. That Pachypodium rosulatum is so strange looking. The spiny parts almost look like mini carrots. I love all the photos, the violet woodsorrel is lovely.
