Cerus Cactus Honey Anyone

Bees love my large Cerus cactus. Every morning the flowers are covered in bees. Their buzzing provides a wonderful song as they go about their busy work harvesting nectar.

It flowers incredibly profusely all summer and the best part is that the flowers stay out until after lunch time, whereas other similar cacti flowers normally close up early in the morning.
