I went on my scheduled walk at the Desert Botanical Garden yesterday morning and one thing I did not expect to see was cactus blooms. When it starts to get really hot, the blooming starts to slow down but, I was lucky. I saw lots of cactus blooms.
Yellow ones and red ones.
And, a huge big white one!
And then, on that cluster that tends to bloom all at once, there were several blooms. I was afraid I had missed seeing any blooms this year so I was pleasantly surprised. Of course, I have more photos to share over the next week or so.
I was afraid it might be too hot to enjoy the walk but it was overcast and only 83 when I arrived. The sun came out after about 30 minutes and by the time I left it was up to 88 but the sun was getting intense. All in all, it was truly enjoyable.
