Cactus Blossoms

Thursday, March 26, 2009

The colors of these blooms are very bright, I guess they really stand out in their drab surroundings. Another wet Winter helps too.

Cactus flowers are pretty rare, no?
Awesome colors, joy to watch :)

well, I am no expert with cactus flowers, but I don't think it's a rare sight.
I pulled one of the petal off, and it's thick and sticky, like aloe leaves.
The giant saguaros also blossoms, and it's an important food source for certain bats. I know people also harvest the fruit, but I am not sure how they are processed.
