A storm rolled through the area Saturday evening bringing some showers in certain parts of the valley so when I got up Sunday morning it was cooler than usual. Cooler and wetter. In fact, it was about 70% humidity but, it was still cool enough to take a walk so off I went to the Desert Botanical Garden.
And, I'm so glad I did. I didn't expect to see so many cactus blooming and the overcast skies made perfect light to get some pictures.
Usually this time of year, I only see white blooms but yesterday there were white, pink and yellow blooms on the different varieties of cactus.
I especially noticed that the Octopus Cactus had blooms all over their skinny, long legs.
See what I mean?
I had a good long walk even though the weather felt more like Costa Rica than Phoenix.
