Cactus Monday - Melocactus conoideus

Happy Cactus Monday to all you cacuteers. This is my ink pen rendition of Melocactus conoideus. It is an odd looking cactus that gets this red top knot and little pink flowers come out of it.

I was expecting to see Sam & Pam..O they are in London,right? With our Soul:)

Thats very different looking cactus. Top knot...reminds me of our sages who always wore a top knot in ancient times.

Ink pen...thts nice! I am so bewildered by the names of all these cacti.

Good job, Lisa. HCM!

Maybe you should call it a cardinal or bishop cactus with that wonderful hat. I see so many of these when they are grafted.

Wonderful job Lisa!
