Its time for another cactus painting for the Cactus Monday Challenge. Not sure what this plant is called, but I know its of the cactus family and the bright red flowers are a constant reminder of when I was a little girl! We were in Burma, I must have been around 8 or 9, and my father was the military attache there. We had a big pot of this plant growing at home. I remember making button holes with the flowers (often getting pricked by the really vicious thorns!) attaching it to a small fern and wrapping the stems with a piece of silver paper.....for my father when he went out in the evening for a formal occasion. He would wait till I put it onto his coat! I have my plant growing in a little pot...and gives me a good feeling whenever I look at it! I thought I would do this as a 20 minute challenge, but it took a little longer, but I enjoyed painting it!
