…And Now for the Flora (Desert Museum, Tucson)

Most of us think of cactuses (yep, that’s an acceptable plural, for you writers out there) as harsh little creatures. I happen to love them, despite the trouble they’ve caused me in the past. (Hence my idea to change Arizona’s motto to “Land of the poky, stingy, and stabby.”)

But in the spring they show off their gorgeous flowers.

I’m willing to forgive the whole poky-stingy-stabby thing for this kind of beauty.

    I remember the first time I inadvertently encountered a desert in bloom. It was such an expected and amazing experience! Your photos are lovely.
