Happy Cactus Monday!


This is an updated old photo I had taken about a year ago at a state park near my house, and I was so happy to come upon it in this mostly sandy environment! It was quite happy, and starting to burst into lovely blooms!

Have a wonderful Cactus Monday!!!

Just beautiful! They may be common in some areas, but not in mine. I always love seeing cactus flowers! The bougainvillea below is beautiful too!

Hi Julie, That's a very pretty cactus blossom! I like the orange-yellow color on the buds as well. I also posted a yellow blooming prickly pear for Cactus Monday.
