For a week or so at this time of year, the cactus flowers come out. We went on a family cactus flower hunt a few evenings ago and the kids gleefully pointed out so many pretty blooms. I had to post pictures of some of the gorgeous flowers we found. I love the juxtaposition of a lovely delicate colorful flower springing from a spiny unhospitable-looking cactus. Beauty can come from pain. Gentleness can be born from strife. Hope can flower in hard situations. I love cactus flowers.
