Lights in the Desert

 One of the highlights of the Desert Botanical Garden is the big collection of flowering cactus. These Claret Cup cactus are fairly rare out in the desert but fortunately the Garden has a substantial number of these plants. The first one that I saw flowering in the wild was by Woods Canyon Lake. Since then I have seen quite a few, but it is always nice to see these beautiful flowers at the Garden.
