Link of the Day
Welcome to My View has a very nice picture of a barrel cactus in full fruit.
Today’s image is another from the San Xavier del Bac Mission just south of Tucson, Arizona. As my friend, Suzanne, and I were leaving the mission from a short visit in early December, I saw this beautiful barrel cactus showing off it’s lovely bright yellow fruit. Behind the barrel cactus, a purple prickly pear cactus was displaying it’s lovely purple pads, making a great background for the green and yellow of the barrel cactus.
