It’s been a busy spring here at the Cactus Jungle so I know I’ve been light in the blogging department lately. Mostly just pictures and stuff, easy stuff to blog. I’m not being lazy – really! However, we know we’ve hit a real low when I post this blurry photo of a flower bud.

Gymnocalycium stenopleurum v. friedrichii

As I was taking the picture someone came and bought the plant right out from under me, so I wasn’t able to get a clearer shot, and I won’t be able to get a picture of the bloom when it opens. If you click the link above you can see one open too.

And just so you know, as if you didn’t already, the genus name means naked bud. You can see very clearly in this less than perfect photo that there are no hairs or spines around that bud at all. Gymno’s!
