Desert in Bloom

H
 I am in Arizona visiting my mother and there are trees and bushes and cacti in bloom all over the place.

In the yard of my mother’s neighbor. When my Dad was in the last stages of his Parkinson’s and disoriented, he got the neighbor’s garbage bin mixed up with theirs and to this day it bothers my Mom as it is smaller and stained with paint. No one would do anything about it so when it got dark, I went over and switched them. There are just renters in the place so I doubt they will notice or care like my Mother does. We will see.

These bloomed only for one day.

The cacti flowers come in yellow too.

You can see the buds on the saguaro cactus but I will miss seeing the blooms. You can also see a little hole where cactus wrens often build nests.
