Prickly Pear Cactus Flower
Prickly Pear Cactus
Synonyms: Palma-Brava, Opuntia
This beauty was blooming off the trail at the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden on Catalina Island. The colors were pretty fantastic and it was the only cactus out of hundreds that I saw blooming.
We are flying back to the cold and dark Northeast today. It will be nice to be back home. I really miss the dogs and it will be great to see them.
