Let's hear it for rain! I'm ready.
It is very interesting to know the life of a cactus plant in a desert.
That is just gorgeous, Diane. The red color really stood out against the blue sky, and the green part of the cactus!
Hi Dianne! Those blooms sure look yummy!
I'd love to see this faze of the blooming process. It looks as though the birds and animals will have a feast!
The birds are going to have a feast.have a great week Diane.Costas
Wonderful photos, I was driving north Craycroft yesterday and it seemed every saguaro had a bird on top.Your camera gets such nice close-ups. I just use a little point and click !I can never get the top/close-ups you do.cheers, parsnp
Terrific captures as always, Diane! What a beautiful saguaro! Love the rich, vibrant colors! Have a great day!Sylvia
Wow gorgeous and succulent.Enjoy a lovely week Diane.
You live surrounded by such beauty and show it so well!Summer is rain season? I wouldn't have bet on that!
How gorgeous are these cactus in bloom! Are the colors this bright year round or just in the summer? I know my hibiscus are brighter and just more beautiful in general right now.Happy Cactus Monday!
beautiful images! regards
Oh Yum, Don't you how how much those birds love that cactus fruit???? They have to wait on it ALL year!!!!!! haI love Cactus blooms.Hugs,Betsy
That fruits look so good, and I don't blame the birds for feasting. Gorgeous photos.
Cool looking cactus, the birds must be in heaven eating that fruit. Wonderful mosaic and photos!
The fruits look like flowers. Besides birds, do humans eat them?I watched in TV, an American chef was barbecuing a flat type of cacti.Yesterday, I took some cacti fruit photo too.
Fantastic photos...so exotic looking!
Oh that fruit looks so sweet. I try to beat the birds to at least a few.
Such vibrant red, Diane! I'm assuming that all the white bumps on the cactus are the flowers of years past. Is that correct? I never knew that!
Great pics of the blooms of this cactus!
How wonderful! The birds get to have a feast ;-) The fruit must be really sweet he he...
Oh wow, I did not know they can have both red and white flowers. Interesting -thanks for yet another tid bit of information, Diane! Love the photos, so vibrant! :)
I really love cactus for their uniqueness and these are very interesting. What gorgeous colors on the flowers. Thanks for the info too.
It's been so long since I've seen a blooming cactus ... not many of THOSE here in Western Oregon!I love seeing birds feeding on the cactus blooms. Brave little things, I think!
Such lushness in the desert...you've captured it really well!
So beautiful. Very much like National Geographic's (of was it Disney?)The Living Desert from decades ago.
What a colorful, juicy, abundant feast for the birds and insects!
