High Desert Cacti in Bloom

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Albuquerque Homes Realty * www.AlbuquerqueHomes.com

Our morning walk greeted us today with this gorgeous High Desert Cacti in Bloom.  This is a Scarlet “Claret-cup” Hedgehog Cactus.  Now you would not want to trip over or fall into this thorn bearing beauty but she was sure enjoying the morning sun.  Here in Albuquerque we enjoy many variety of High Desert Cacti in Bloom.  Hummingbirds and Bees really enjoy these nectar rich blossoms.

John- those colors are so striking, I'd love to use it as an accent color in a house I'm staging.  Isn't Mother Nature funny how she places these flowers on a thorny cactus.

Beautiful John.  You are so right, those thorns are brutal.  There are some cacti in Arizona that actually throw their thorns if you get to close to them.  I think its either the body heat or movement you generate when you get to close to them.

Good Eveving John, I have to say what a fantastic flower, when you think of cactus you do not always think of flowers. Your area certainly has a lot of beauty. Have a great evening

Hi John,

Wow, what spectacular photos! Isn't it amazing how many things actually do bloom in the desert? I spend all the time I can in our desert area near Palm Springs and absolutely love this time of year with so many things in bloom.
