Can you help me identify this big puppy? It's prominent in a cactus garden & you can see a pink bloom. I'm determined to learn to identify succulents & cacti!

Thanks for your assistance!

I don't know cacti at all but possibly? Tree Cholla (Cylindropuntia imbricata)

All cacti are succulents but not all succulents are cacti!

Cylindropuntia imbricata it is!

Thanks!
