I had some spare time while visiting the Colorado Springs area and I paid a visit to the Manitou Cactus Shop in Manitou Springs, Colorado. I frequently visited this place when I lived in this town and I am very proud of how this photo came out! ;)
There were quite a few cacti I had never seen before.
This one is called Mammillaria Petterssonii.
Notocactus Apricus - I would think the deep kelly
green shade of the cactus skin and the clovers would have made this quite an item on St. Patrick's Day! ;)
Not sure of the name of this one, but it's in the Notocactus family.
Look at this! This succulent was blooming these beautiful pink flowers!
