Golden Explosion

These small yellow flowers appear on top of the Golden Barrel cactus from spring to mid-summer around the crown of the plant. They will only bloom when the cactus reaches twenty years old or so. The Golden Barrel is native to central Mexico and is common to Arizona, New Mexico and the desert Southwest. Shot taken west of Tucson Arizona
