Ruby Cactus Blossom

El  Charco del Ingenio
Cactus blossom, El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México



Why are you amazed
that the brightest flowers bloom,
nestling among thorns?

What a beautiful contrast - the soft, colourful flower and the spiky cactus (leaf?). Nice composition.

Love the cactus flower bloom! We have some here that grow wild in open fields and along roads. They are a bright yellow in color!
