Oh this is really pretty! It has about 4 more buds that are about ready to open too :)
These are so cool LOL. This is the second year for them in a little donkey cart. And yea there is grass growing in the pot but I tried weeding it and OUCH! Those spines are wicked :lol:

Very pretty!
It's not the big spines you have to watchout for. There are tiny little ones you can hardly see that can drive you crazy if you get them on you.
