Tiny bloom, huge cactus
As many times as I've been to the Desert Botanical Garden, I can't believe I never noticed the tiny little blooms on this cactus. I'm actually surprised I saw them on this occasion.
The cactus itself is so large and the blooms are so tiny that you really have to get close to see them and getting close to cactus is not always a good idea. Apparently the light was just right on Sunday because as I walked past this massive plant, I suddenly saw a flash of white. I moved in a little closer and found the very dainty little lace-like blooms all over the arms of the Whortleberry Cactus.
