Dyckias, some modern hybrids just takes my breath away.

...and I just love it.
I climbed many mountains, I searched for  Dyckias above the clouds
always searching for  the ultimate beauty.
Those who sow a Dyckia seed sow more than just a seed, sow a dream.
Dreamers climb all mountains...not for the challenge of a edelweiss

but for the most beautiful Dyckia.

All dreams fit fine wihin a seed.
