after my nap

I woke up from my nap and after I fed the dog, wandered out into the garden. I do a lot of wandering, when I suppose I should be weeding.

Here is Echinocereus reichenbachii var. albispinus. Some botanists ignore the white-spined business and consider this just the regular species, which is fine with me.

The sun came out as tried to take a picture of one of these fairly amazing echinocereus hybrids, so I created a mini-eclipse by standing between the cactus and the sun. I saw these plants at Timberline Gardens a couple of years ago and they all came home with me. Without any persuasion at all.

    p.s. I am now told these hybrids are Echinocereus x lloydii (coccineus x dasyacanthus).
