Gorgeous flowers! Just a question, this cactus makes fruits? It's similar to one from Spain, but I'm not sure!
That's a very gorgeous shadow shots. Happy Sunday!Shadodw Shot Sunday
Hi Neus, Yes, this cactus make fruit. Some people use it for syrup or jelly. :)
Oh how I love spring in the desert, seeing the cactus blooms just gives me a little thrill. Glad I got to see that last week, because it will be a while before seeing any blooms up here.
It always amazes me that cacti have such pretty flowers. The shadows are neat!
It's great to see a cactus so close up - there's so much texture!
wonderful cactus shadows - super!!
Cacti are fantastic when their flowers show up.
Hi Diane,Your aunt and I were just strolling and shooting roses. Wish you could have been with us. Your blooming cactus and Haiku are both lovely.
Hi Barb, Glad you and Martha had a nice time. Maybe I'll get to see some pictures of the roses. :)
May must be one of the best times of year in the desert --since you see all of the new growth. Our new growth is usually in April here---although we see lots of it throughout the summer also. Beautiful pictures, Diane... The desert is such an incredible place.Hugs,Betsy
Your desert is blooming. I wish the cactus would bloom in cooler weather, no friend of the heat am I. Barb and I had to seek some shade on our walk, it's getting warm here, too.
I love seeing the cacti when they bloom like this. What a beautiful sight.
Oh, so pretty! Glad we have photos because in a few weeks they will be gone. :-(
beautiful shots as always Diane, I love these cacti especially when they bloom.

These are really nice! Quite different to the plants in my garden. I love the colours in the last one! Have a great week :)
