Canadian Cactus in Bloom
In Manitoba, no less. You would think they would have a mpicture, but they do have this very nice description.
The cacti bloom in the Carberry sandhills. The delicate yellow blossom of the plains prickly-pear cactus is in sharp contrast with the prickly stems of this brittle plant.
One of the best places to view the prickly-pear cactus in full blossom is along the Quiet Voices Trail in Spruce Woods Provincial Park. These yellow flowers are plentiful and easily spotted among the mixed-grass prairie here. The pincushion cactus, with its characteristic violet-pink flower, is far less abundant.
