Cactus in Bloom

The cactus are blooming all around me!  I absolutely adore this time of year!  I dare not leave the house without my camera, as I know around the next corner will be a new beauty in bloom.  This is a hedgehog cactus that, for most of the year, is very  forbidding, with long and very sharp needles, but right now it is covered in these magnificent, delicate flowers of the brightest fuschia.  Love that little green center that almost looks like a tiny cactus.  They just fascinate me!  Trying to enjoy every second of spring.
