It is springtime in the desert and I never get tired of posting pictures of cactus flowers. Our bishop’s cap cactus is blooming again. Twelve or more flowers are open this afternoon on this cactus that we bought in a garden shop near Phoenix back in 1998; at the time the little barrel cactus was in a two-inch pot and badly in need of transplanting. I took it to California, put it into a six-inch pot which it eventually outgrew. Today it’s in an eight-inch pot and will soon be in a twelve-inch or larger pot to continue to make flowers in our courtyard. Click on the image to enlarge.
