We had just enough winter rain to produce a bumper crop of cactus flowers! :) I can't believe how many buds are on the prickly pear and cholla in our area this year! In the lower elevations, the cactus are already in full flower but we are a bit behind here. The prickly pear in our pasture just started blooming this week. It's funny how you don't really notice things right under your nose sometimes. I went out to take pictures of the flowers this morning but they weren't open yet! Duh, I never really paid attention before that they close up overnight! LOL!!
I just love the cheerful yellow color and delicate appearance of the prickly pear flowers. This particular smallish prickly pear has well over 60 buds on it. I hope to get a picture when most of the flowers are open. :)
