Yellow Rose of Connecticut?

Years ago when I lived 10 miles from here, my Prickly Pear (native to Northeast coastal regions - Opuntia humifusa) used to blossom around June 24, and I used to have a"Cactus Blossom  Party";  but in this microclimate (north side of Fall Mountain) all my flowers are two weeks late and, well no party.  Click to enlarge.

That's a beautiful flower. I'm always amazed at how such delicate flowers come from such hardy plants.

We have a few of those in our yard as well, and it's always a sight when they bloom.
