Today's Flowers

You are probably getting tired of seeing my pictures from my holiday but oh well, here are a few more!!
You don't see some of these where I live unless you go to the nursery and purchase it there. These are prairie cactus, maybe a weird flower for Today's Flowers, but they do have flowers at one point or so I am told!! I don't know what these pods are but probably seed pods for some cactus type.

Coneflower I think!!

A different view of the Coneflower.
And a different type of cactus. These were hard to see in the grass, and I imagine it would hurt to step on these if you took a shortcut through the grass. My sister kept telling me no shortcuts!!

Cactus flowers can be quite spectacular. Pity you were not there at the right time.

Coneflowers are special - they bloom a long time.
