My favo(u)rite cactus is in bloom. It blooms about six times a year when it’s been established and sometimes at Christmastime.
Wow. Pretty. How do dey taste?
Awww…you’re so cute. I’m going to link you to Awww Mondays because you more than qualify. 🙂
Thanks-I’m really more like Silly Sundays
No, they’re golden torches. I’ll have to do my ocotillo post some day. There’s an ocotillo a few feet away from the cactus in the last two pictures but you can’t see it.
so pretty, kyla
edgar and his mum

Mollie and Alfie
Beans? You have me tempted. I guess I could spare some cacti.
Very red, they look like Christmas red and green.

Sometimes it comes out at Christmas time and that’s a big plus.
Flowers for a pretty lady. You’re the best my Kyla friend. (Say “hey” to Kaci and Kismet.)
Kaci says “Hi, Stu” and Kismet says “Squawkkkkk”.
Those are stunning Kyla…we have none like that at all, and the ones that do bloom only do it once a year…Just curious…do these also have a fruit?
Nope, just a seed pod that I wouldn’t call a fruit. The saguaros have a fruit and humans use it. I’ve never seen a little one of these grow-just cuttings from an adult to make new ones.
Absolutely gorgeous… and the cactus is beautiful too!

VERY Pretty! We don’t have anything like it!

OOH, I love gardening-it’s a challenge here.
They are gorgeous, Kyla. We love that vibrant red!
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
The pix don’t do them justice.
I love these bright flowers, especially in desert landscaping! We live in the dry brown West Texas plains, and any spot of color is a delight! That fluffy little furkid out for a summer stroll is pretty cute too! 🙂
These cactii aren’t native to Arizona (South America, I believe). They need just a touch of extra water once in a while and if that works for Arizona, it should work for Texas also.
Very cool….I do like the Red and Black combo!
Nice photo comp!
It’s getting more like red and gray.
You’d be a great gardener over here on our soggy wet and very green island if that’s what you can grow in the dessert or is it desert?? Toenails getting in the way!
I’ll show you my garden soon. Mollie started it. There’s special stuff I have to do here.
That looks great! I wish I had the large one for my back yard. As my mom was a puppy she and her freaky cousin peeled and ate a cacti, because her cousin said it’s a cucumber with prickles.
They make prickly pear cactus jelly. Cactus is in Mexican cuisine. I bet it didn’t taste like chicken.
both were sick and humanoide fountains. And a poor nurse spent hours to remove the cucumber-prickles. But I would like to try cactus jelly :o)
wow what beautiful flowers on the cactus! and your puppy is so cute!
They are beautiful, but I’m the puppy (turned 11 last week and thanks for the compliment). I write this blog in my style. The peeps have no say except to correct my doggie punctuation.
They sure are pretty!
They’re my faves.
Careful of the pricklies! Woooowooo, Ku
Been there, done that, no more, don’t worry.
