Golden Yellow Blooms

I'm delighted! After weeks of bud formation a yellow flower finally bloomed with another to appear soon. And more buds are forming, so this plant will be blooming all summer. After the flower dies and falls off the plant, the spines on its stem stuck to my fingers when I tried to pick it up, ouch! But the cacti is almost spineless, with a few minuscule spines sticking out sideways from the aereoles, so it is finger friendly. From exposure to the sun the stem has turned light yellow green with pink accents, from a darker, cooler green a few months ago.
