Cactus and shades of yellow
The prickly pear cactus blooms from yellow to almost an orange and on the same cactus. The problem with sharing here is, as it was with the pinks, what to leave out? They are all such beautiful blossoms.
When the entire plant is in bloom, it's transformed into its own garden.
To me, this little guy defines ecstasy. I watched as he rolled and almost seemed to wash himself in the pollen. That is joy personified. When the cactus bloom, the desert is alive with buzzing insects racing between each bloom for more of the sweetness.
