Desert flowers…

a 1

I know, we are supposed to have taken a time machine trip to the 1970’s… and we have… but you will just have to adapt to being in two times at the same time, if you see what I mean, and I know you can.

I am now back in San Diego after my trip to Scottsdale, Arizona to help Jessica get stuff ready for the wedding next weekend.

Between packing gift bags and doing lots of other useful things, I did manage to slip out a few times to explore the desert. I was lucky so see some cactus flowers, as well as these lovely yellow blooms.

There were huge trees filled with these.

But seeing the cacti blooming was really special. It only happens for a few weeks on each type of cacti. They all tend to bloom at more or less the same time. I presume this is reproductive-oriented… sort of a cactus orgy.

Not all the types of cacti bloom at once. The huge Saguaro cacti were not ready yet… I mean, I assume they do it, too.

Lots of other bushes and shrubs were showing off their colors also.

I did my patented ‘waking up at an obscenely-early hour for the drive home in order to get some photos of the sunrise’ thing this morning, and I have more cool pictures of that, and a few more flower pictures, so try to keep half of your head in the past and the rest on the now… or something like that.
