September Blooms

 


Here are a few blooms I found on my walk at the Desert Botanical Garden last Friday.  Above is a bloom on a gourd plant.  

To the right is a Yerba Mansa bloom.  There is a whole group of Yerba Mansa plants that grow near the little pond on one of the garden trails.  I love their unusual looking blooms.













A single bloom was open on the top of a barrel cactus.  If you look closely you can see some tiny little ants inside the bloom.


And of course I had to photograph more desert rose blooms.  I love these plants and they are blooming like crazy right now.

Very pretty. I see the bees are busy.

The plant world certainly has a variety of colours, shapes and sizes. Sharon you did a great job of photographing them.

Honeybees and aunts, signs of a healthy ecosystem

The barrel cactus flower is delightful

Looks like the insects are all hard at work! (Or are those bees sleeping? Passed out from too much pollen?)
