Chollas blooming!

 I took a quick trip to Tucumcari to visit friends.  As I headed north on Highway 54 towards Santa Rosa, I was wowed by blooming chollas.

There were huge patches of chollas, all thickly blossoming lighting up the desert with their hot pink/magenta flowers.  My pictures don't do them justice.  It was a bit hazy.

 Like the yuccas around us, I don't think I've seen such an explosion of blossoms all at once. 
I came home with a serger, unfortunately missing a foot pedal, and some bread from Frank's Bakery in Amarillo.
