A nature journal incorporating back yard birding observations and experiences at Tohono Chul Park, a 49-acre desert oasis in northwest Tucson, Arizona.
A cloudy, hot, humid day with much beauty remaining from the previous night’s night-blooming cereus celebration. Most of these photos were taken in the new front part of Tohono Chul Park.
Thank you! Wish you could have been there!
That first bloom looks like a botanical volcano! You are a lucky duck to live there.
The first bloom is actually a Claret Cup Hedgehog; but cactus blooms in general are amazing. And... quack!
