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.
