We are going to the cactus garden at the Extension Service in Grand Junction CO and it's very windy. If you are wearing open-toed shoes, use exteme caution. And behave yourself because they have video camera monitoring. And I'll warn you in advance that I have no idea what most of these plants are. I'm too busy with my camers to make notes from the little posted signs.
Oh, look at this pretty little beauty. The cactus is all in a cluster and the thorns appear to be minimal but I'm not getting close enough to check it out. I can easily admire that beautiful blossom from here. It looks like the blossoms are each taking a turn to open so we can return in a week and see the others.
Let's move on.
