Alcy wanted to go to Brookwood Community at Brookshire to photograph flowers. Thankfully they had an extensive selection of cacti. This was a few days ago but I wanted to post them since they are considerably different from what I normally do. It was all I could do not to come home with a container cacti garden. I think I would keep cacti alive but there is no guarantee.
They also had a lot of poinsettia. When I got back to the studio I was processing the following picture and was very frustrated because I couldn't get it to the red color that I thought a poinsettia was supposed to be. Then Alcy explained why--it's a hydrangea or something like that--okay hibiscus.
