I found this buckhorn cholla on the desert west of the Five Acres. Most of the buckhorn blooms I’ve seen have been yellow with a strip of red/magenta running the length of each petal.
But I was in for a surprise yesterday when I was out hiking — I actually found two cholla plants with this striking color.
And who be me? I’m Sally Banks, web master (or is that mistress:-)?) of this blog. I’m a beader and a photographer — captivated by color in all its varied hues.
