All the rain this weekend helped to cool down the temperatures by quite a lot so on Sunday morning I went for an early morning walk at the Desert Botanical Garden. I didn't expect to see cactus blooms but one cactus located at the entrance to the garden had an abundance of blooms on it.
It's a very tall and very bumpy cactus called Cereus Hildmannianus. Whoa, that's a mouthful.
If you look at the tallest arms, you will see blooms sprouting out in all directions.
This is a night blooming cactus so when I arrived at 6:00 AM, most of the blooms were still open. You can see the two I have pictured there in the center of the cactus.
I'm glad I was there early to see these two beauties.
