I don’t know what these flowers are, but in a forest in Northern Arizona, they grew low on the forest floor. They caught my eye and I knew I wanted to remember them.

From my morning neighborhood walk. I have no idea what kind of cactus this is, not native I’m sure, huge, very tall. Every year about this time it produces these big blossoms. I have to reach up to get the blossoms and they last a few days.
Cactus seem to be in their prime now and blooming in my neighborhood. Some are finished, others are just now showing blossoms.
Desert Botanical Garden of Phoenix, where there are so many different cacti blooming now, it’s obvious there are many more to come.
There are still a few poppies around, but this was one of my favorite pictures of the season. And what a good season this has been.
The Datura, a native plant in Arizona, beautiful and poisonous. Desert Botanical Garden.
I have been told these are not Datura. Both my friend and I thought they were. Apparently they are Primroses, but they are different from what I am used to. I’m always learning.
