A Bloomin Desert - The Chihuahuan Desert

There are a lot of interesting plants in the Chihuahuan Desert
Many are in bloom this time of year.







This was on the Indian Lodge Trail. I liked that the needles match the blooms.

I have done some stupid things and climbing up to get a close up of this  cactus was one of them. The rocks were not stable and I had to pass through some rather unfriendly thorn bushes.

I think this is a Queen Victoria Agave.

Cat's Claw? bush in bloom?

  2. April is about the only time you will see this though...after that might as well shoot in black and white.
