Ocotillo in bloom
This plant has those sharp barbs (see shot with my finger) and was in bloom.
I tried taking a close up shot of the blooms but didn't get a decent one to post. See this page for more of a description of this interesting plant.

Thanks Larry, it was the guy I was with who mentioned the blossoms to me. I really enjoyed learning about the Sonoran desert, so different in plant species from the Mojave desert that I pretty much grew up in.
