Prickly Pear Blooms

Prickly Pear Pinkish Bloom

Hi everyone, I'm back in Seguin again. Last time I went with Mark to check on the country bees, we noticed the prickly pears were starting to bloom. I love the beautiful yellow of the blooms and if you drive around right now, you'll notice many of the cacti are in bloom. I hope the bees are enjoying them and I hope you all have a great weekend!

Aren't these wonderful flowers? I love the contrast between the beautiful soft bloom and the thorns. Reminds me of a lot of girls I dated in my single days! Have a great weekend.

Thanks, Lisa. Hey Dan, you are a riot. What were you doing picking out the prickly girls, anyway? ;)

I loved to see the cacti in bloom. I have only seen pictures as anytime I was in Arizona in the summer the desert was not in bloom. Sad.

On our way home from church this morning, we were noticing how ALLLL of the cactus had HUGE yellow flowers opened up on them. They were EVERYWHERE! =0)
