Believe it or not, one of our earliest bloomers is a cactus! It has gorgeous pink and yellow flowers. Usually, I find one cactus every here or there but a friend showed me a veritable cactus garden on a hillside!
On a sunny and warm day, all the flowers were wide open.
One common characteristic of all our early flowers is that they can close their flowers up tight when it gets too cold. I took this photo last week, and I haven't seen the flowers open in the morning again since then.
These are such showy flowers. Wow!
Believe it or not, these cacti are on the hillside where Shyla is running in this photo.
We both have avoided stepping on or riding over any cacti for many years, thank goodness. When the cacti aren't blooming, they aren't easy to see!
Happy Flower Friday!
