Prickly Pear Pink, Papery Cactus Flowers

Here is a photo of some vibrant Prickly Pear Cactus flowers in bloom.

These types of cactus flowers look a lot like thin paper, similar to carnation paper flowers you may have made in school.

I saw this cactus in bloom when hiking and tomorrow I will show you how many blooms were opening up. I was glad to see so many on one small prickly pear cactus.

I'm filled with admiration for cactus flowers. It seems like such a miracle for such a plant to put forth such a blossom.
