Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

A couple of weeks ago the Desert Botanical Garden had their Spring plant sale and I dropped by to see if anything caught my eye. I picked up that plant with the flower I posted (macro shot) earlier this week and I also got a cactus called a Claret Cup Cactus. Before I could get that cactus transplanted, it started blooming with these gorgeous flowers.
There are 4 blooms right now but there are still several buds on the cactus. Once they all bloom, I'll get it transplanted. I don't want to jostle those buds right now.
