blossom week: day 3

We have at least eight varieties of cacti in the front yard. And I can only identify one with certainty. This is not that one. But I do know that it produced the earliest cactus flowers of the season. Pretty!

Here's the one that I do know - prickly pear. It doesn't have flowers right now, but I had to take a photo of its strange paddle buds. I'm not sure why but my skin gets all crawly whenever I look at those things. <shudder>

And another cactus just started blooming yesterday!
