Cactus in Bloom

Wednesday, March 9, 2011
They're not very big, just slightly larger than my thumbnail, but these tiny cactus blossoms were a real find today.  A friend and I trekked down to Borrego Springs to see what wildflowers might be in bloom.  We were slightly disappointed, not seeing as much as we had last year.  But we figured we might be about a week too early as we did see signs of buds and new plants.  One of the best ways to find flowers is to take a hike off the beaten path.  And that's where we found this lone cactus starting to burst out in blooms.
