Blooming Cacti: Part I~

Cacti are blooming all over Hollerdom.
Prickly plants yielding fragile flowers.

Like gilded lilies,


in rainbow hues,

seeking sun,

through lethal thorns.
An Easter parade,

in a desert scape,

beauty triumphs in the harshest places.

Cheers & Happy Easter to you~

  1. Cindy, the incredible contrast that you have created here is something ~ the first photo does not seem possible, which makes it all the more beautiful.

    • These are my favorite cactus flowers because of the vibrant, as you said almost unbelieveable reds, oranges and yellows. They grow wild all over the mojave desert. So pleased you see them as I do Randall & cheers to you~

  2. These pictures reminded me so much of when we lived in Tucson! …fond memories!!! Thank you for sharing them! I am only sad I am late in seeing them. We did have a Prickly Pear bloom a few weeks ago a beautiful yellow flower. We have been tending to it ever since it was very small.
