Even the most blasé and disinterested "naturalist" among us is humbled by these new-growth cacti paddle flowers. Just look at the colors. Then the mini-paddles that so mimic mature growth. And the beauty of the blossoms themselves, just days from popping out in even more regal splendor. We were fortunate to watch nature do its spring time dance in AZ. Don't these things look almost good enough to eat?
