Colors come to cacti around town

SANTA FE, N.M. — It’s summer in Santa Fe, with butterflies on cactus flowers.

This yellow butterfly was checking out the purple blossoms on a cholla in city park open space in central Santa Fe Tuesday morning.

The cholla flowers have burst on the scene in the past several days.
