More Canyon Color

Chainfruit Chollas (Cylindropuntia fulgida) are blooming! The flowers are rather small and always bright pink. The flowers grow from the fruits of previous year, and the fruits thus form chains. Also known as Jumping Cholla, the stems and fruits detach easily, so watch your back around these plants!
