Great collection Baja!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Lovely, Baja! So cute - they look like prickly cup cakes, although putting one in your mouth might not be too clever. Hilarious!

Thank you everyone for the kind words and the acorns. Smiling The bright red spines on those plants are not just eye candy, but also a sign they are actively growing. Something I celebrate in both senses.

Yes, it is quite striking, and even more so in person. The most colorful of the Ferocacti is a resident of the central desert of Baja California.
