^^ The cinnamon dot cactus have started to bloom.
^^ Bright yellow blossom on the purple Santa Rita cactus.
^^ The whole cactus was uprooted and collapsed in a storm several weeks ago, but it appears to be still partly rooted at the base. They will root from the pads as well, so this one may survive in altered posture! It is covered with flower buds and new pads.
^^The hedgehog cactus are nearly finished blooming. They are usually the first in the spring to bloom.
^^ The flowers are yellow, but this is a blue palo verde tree. It sprouted from a seed and is only about 7 years old.
^^ A bee in a prickly pear blossom.
^^ Truly giant saguaro behind my workshop. The saguaro doesn't bloom until later in the spring, around May, but this big guy was just looking so handsome this morning I couldn't resist.
