Wildflower fever hits Tucson ~

Absolutely everywhere you turn the desert is on display with gorgeous, vibrant color! This lovely patch of cactus flowers is just off the Old Spanish Trail walking path. The amazing magenta flowers are the hedgehog cactus in bloom. So pretty! Look closely and you'll also see a bit of saguaro spine... it looks like driftwood.

  1. Another great Tucson picture. I am visiting Tucson next month and hoping to catch some of the desert in bloom while there. I will drop you a line about Ireland sometime next week as I am having internet problems right now and customer service here is not like it is in the U.S.
