more desert blooms

Pictures of some of the desert blooms . This cactus is very hard to find. It looks like a dead stick most of the time. I water this one about once a week, so it is nice and plump. The dogs have a water container on the other side of the tree. the wildife drink from it too. I just put water jugs in my backpack and fill the containers as I get to them. This is a night blooming cereus in the wild. It is at the bottom of an ironwood tree. The little fuzzy bumps are the flower buds. It should be in bloom in a couple of weeks.

different ironwood in bloom. I cant get too close because of all the bees.
