Ring around the 'cushion

Photo by Marty Horowitz 7/1/2016

Rains in June brought out the blossoms on Fishhook Pincushion Cactus (Mammillaria grahamii). These tiny cactus can bloom multiple times during the year. Their fruits (yes, the things with the seeds) look like mini chili peppers. They're sweet (or citrus-y, depending on the taster), though, not spicy hot.
