Hedgehogs in Bloom

These are special days on the desert — new flowers are popping out everywhere. Right now the hedgehog cacti are stealing the show.

If you’re thinking of entering the Sonoran Shindig photo contest next spring, now’s a good time to grab your camera. And if you’re a painter or watercolorist thinking about next February’s Red Show in the Plaza Gallery, there’s no shortage of inspiration out there.

  1. Hi Joyce … the ocotillo are in full bloom wherever you look. And the buckhorn cactus are just beginning. I think the heat is a bit much for the brittlebush as they seem to be dying back. Another spectacular site? The blue palo verde — the trees are draped in frothy yellow blooms. Quite stunning. Gotta love the desert at this time of year.

    • Yes, the desert is looking wonderful — I’m even enjoying the lizards and the snakes. 🙂 As for the email address, hmmm. I’ll have to check that out. Would you email again with a bit more detail about what happened and what you’re seeing?
