Hello - that is a marvelous picture. I'd love to see many more of the various beautiful cacti in bloom in the desert. I hear it is just beautiful in full spring bloom.

If you can share .. I'd like that.

Cheers and thanks,
Jayne

Very nice! I thought it was funny that I just posted a Texas cactus pear shot. "Texas Spring." The more common bloom here is more yellow. I suspect you have a great variety of pear cactus in Arizona.

Hi Tom,
Yes, I saw your cacti flower pics. I hadn't realized that you (also) have a plentitude of cacti in Texas! The most destinctive kind we have is the Saguaro, of course.

Great photos! It's amazing how something so sharp and brittle can "give birth" some of the most gentle, delicate and colorful blooms!

Regards,
