Cactus Flower


One of the things I really like about living in the desert southwest are the blooms that you find on the various cactus in the area.

I didn't even know that there were cactus flowers. As you can tell by me not knowing that, I need to get out more and visit other parts of the country lol.

Wonderful bright vivid colors of a wildflower. The cholla's bloom is a real eye catcher!

Beautiful, Randy. As an Easterner, I don't think of cacti as having flowers. But, I am learning . . .
