Spring at the Desert Botanical Garden

April is a wonderful time to visit the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. Arizona.

Of course you would expect beautiful cacti, like these hedgehog cacti with orange flowers.

The flowers glow in the sun.

Cactus flowers come in a rainbow of colors.

“Bee” sure to look into every one.

The wildflowers are wonderful, too. How can something called “scorpionweed” be so lovely?

After awhile you are at a loss for words.

Even the trees are full of colorful flowers.

If flowering is a pageant,

which flower would be the winner?
