I was struck by the beauty of this red-spined barrel cactus. The spines just glowed in the morning sun. I'm not sure if I have correctly identified it so post a comment if you know more! It is either a Denmoza Rhodacantha or a Ferocactus. It is GORGEOUS!

I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
