Beauty among the thorns

It is the contrast between the profusion of spines and the flowers that make the cactus plants attractive. Normally, you would want to pick or smell one of the lovely flowers, but the nature of the plant makes both these activities highly questionable. I have very little sense of smell and so I can't tell you if the cactus flowers have any perfume, but I doubt it.
