last week's cacti blooms

Spotted several nice cacti flowers last week. The red fish hook cacti above is right outside my home office window. It was a naturally occuring cacti started by a passing bird that I relocated away from my foundation to its current location. Seems to have tolerated the move just fine.

And the rest of these guys were taken Friday at a brief stop at Tucson Botanical Gardens...

[Links: GrannyJ has posted some great pictures of a colorful moth well worth checking out on her blog at WalkingPrescott.]
