Here are some spring cactus blooms in our yard. I took the photos as soon as I saw the blooms, as cottontail rabbits eat every bloom they can reach!
Prickly Pear Cactus Flowers
This first show shows two different prickly pear cactus flowers. Prickly pear cactus flowers appear in a variety of colors, from pale yellow to bright fuchsia.
Cholla Cactus Flowers
There is also a wide variety of types of cholla. This one features large, pink flowers.
