  1. Nice pics! We get white flowers and red fruit on prickly pears in S. Arizona– I’m going to see about getting a harvesting permit and making some jam this summer. Fruit harvest is in August/Sept! Not too far away!

    Nice blog, by the way. =)

    • Thanks Jadewik! I see that you and I are practically neighbors in the real sense. :)I am familiar with the prickly pears you are talking about. Last month I did a race through Sabino Canyon and a few of the cactus were in bloom there. They were the ones you were talking about. I love prickly pear ice tea. I bet the jam is divine.

      I am really enjoying your blog too! I found it when doing a search on the San Carlos Hotel last week.

  2. How beautiful. I didn’t think they bloomed this time of year.

  3. Just beautiful! I love that shade of lemon yellow.

  4. How gorgeous! I love flowering cactus – it’s a bit of beauty amongst the evil spikes 🙂

  5. Prickly pear is so very pretty.

    Wow how beautiful and lovely ….thank you for this post I´m impressed 🙂 you have this cactus in the front yard-cool-that is here in my country not impossible…love your country 🙂

  7. Oh my gosh, that is absolutely gorgeous! I love prickly pear cactus, even though a lot of people around my place bad-mouth them and call them pests. I think cacti are very beautiful!!

    • Isn’t that nice? It only blooms once a year. If my husband had his way we’d get rid of this but I love the desert landscape. We both unfortunately have bumped into it when getting out of our cars. Its not a very forgiving plant. The spines are really tiny and very hard to get out once they make contact with your skin or clothing.
