Desert Beauty – High Eleven

I don’t know what type of cactus this is but if you know please let me know.  This cactus was one of many in the private garden of an RV park in Congress, Arizona.  It shared space with Methuselah the oldest known cactus in Arizona.  More about that old boy in this post.

(Decided to post some things I had in queue that I had forgotten about in the pile of other photos and posts.  It’s going to be this and that for a few days until I get another theme going)

    Cactus flowers are so beautiful and unexpected. You were lucky to be there when they bloomed. Nice.

      We kind of planned the trip in order to see them bloom even though we came in around the tail of the season. Thanks.

        I was in the desert in Southern Utah once when the cacti were in bloom. It’s really special.

        What time of year were you in Utah? Eyeballing that as a photo trip 🙂

        I am guessing May. It was a long time ago. It is pretty country.

    Perfectly pear-like.

    Prickly Pear I believe and sounds like you visited “North Ranch”. If you find yourself around Wickenburg again, be sure and visit the Cowboy Museum. Last time I was there, they had an amazing B&W photo gallery.

      Prickly it is! Don’t think we will be in Wickenburg again since they are now stationed in Apache Junction.

    That is a bizarre cactus.

    No idea, Teri. The prickly pear in my garden has yellow blooms — when it decides to have one.Nevertheless, it’s a beauty and you must have been happy to see it.
    Thought of you while I was at the Botanic Gardens. I saw their 2 Saguaro Cacti, Unfortunately that’s about as close as I’ll probably get to seeing them, at least for now.
