I went to the Desert Botanical Garden early on Friday morning hoping that I would see some cactus blooms and my hopes were beautifully fulfilled. The stunning pink bloom above was on an echinopsis aurea, native to Argentina.
These jumbo sized blooms are on a cactus called an Argentinian Giant. These blooms typically measure 12 inches across.
This brilliant red bloom is found on another cactus called the Red Torch.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. This time I visit the home of a very delicious bubbly beverage.
