First Blooms of the Season



I thought I'd celebrate the first cactus blooms of the season.  Well, the first I've seen so far anyway.

I found this cactus at Julie and Dave's house Sunday before last.  These pretty orange blooms are one of my favorite cactus flowers.  This one was just a tiny little cactus but it had six gorgeous blooms!

I can't wait to see more.

You have posted some lovely flowers recently, and these two are also exceptional. The cacti blossoms are so extraordinary: colours, shape and overall lovely image. They give life to the desert!!

As I recall, this was my favorite time of the year in Phoenix, and I loved seeing the desert in bloom. Your photos are gorgeous and a great reminder of those days so I thank you. Enjoy!
