Hedgehog Cactus in Bloom

Pink Hedgehog Cactus Flower

This is a flower in bloom on one of the transplant hedgehog cacti out front. This one used to be up on the hill behind us near the north property line. These beautiful flowers were mostly hidden under the desert brush up there until we moved it down here.

Our spring days continue to be beautiful with warm temperatures and sunshine. Today, we’re both in shorts and had a backyard BBQ session with filet mignon on the grill. Retirement in the Arizona desert is good.

    I just saw those beautiful hedgehogs in flower by Vulture Peak. We’re staying at My Place in town.

    WOW! Welcome to Wickenburg!

    Are your plans to stay here a while? My Place is about 1/2 mile from our place.

    We’re planning to stay until Friday morning, when we have to go back to Cali. We sure like this town!

    I sent contact info but it didn’t go the first time I tried. Weird.

    Anyhow, I think it got sent - one from regular email and one through my gmail account.
