A trio of trichocereus ~

One of the truly spectacular wonders of the Sonoran Desert is the Trichocereus cactus flower. It is a bloom that lasts just one day. May is the month to look for these beauties. For another photo (different colors) and information from the Desert Museum on this plant, click here. And - you may have noticed that TucsonDailyPhoto uses a trichocereus as the site's logo and "Welcome" greeting!
