blooming aloe

eat up!

Valentine cactus?

Took a docent led tour of the aloe and agave garden in the DBG this morning. I learned so much about the life cycle and medicinal properties of these plants. The second tour was more general but still learned tons about the Sonoran Desert.

After a quick sandwich at the patio cafe, I walked the rest of the garden and spotted an adorable heart shaped cactus and not far from that I spotted a chipmunk(?) dining on a cactus bloom.

I try to get to the DBG each season. It's a wonderful place.

Had to be home in time for a 4 o'clock get together at Jim and Jane's place. Their friends from Maine have arrived and it was a pleasure sharing stories with them .

I did lots of walking today so I am beat. Should sleep well tonight.
