This was another photo taken on our hike to Ram Head on St John Island. We saw more of these cacti, Turk’s Cap (Melocactus intortus), than I could count. We understand that we were about a week early to see them bloom. The flowers are supposedly edible. We talked to some other hikers who had been on the island for awhile and said the red “heads” had appeared in the past week.
This illustrates a common occurrence in life. We can be happy for that which we have and experience, or we can focus on/ long for that which is “missing” or out of our reach.
