Flowering season

Even during the winter, there are periodic surprises in the greenhouses. But at this time of! A surprise just about every hour! Many of the cacti are budding up and flowering and the dormant caudiciform plants are leafing out. And the Lithops are finishing out their winter growth spurt as the old leaves shrivel up and the new leaves plump up. Never a dull moment.
This is a closeup of Mammillaria saboae, a small growing plant with relatively large flowers.
