Aloe reitzii (below). Relatively few Aloes are in bloom, but there are a few.
Not blooming, but oh-so-pretty Agave ovatifolia:
Hechtia or Dyckia seed pods, very attractive:
I don't know which cactus this is, but the flowers are unexpectedly dainty:
This agave flower had bright yellow color.
A small Parkinsonia 'Desert Museum', just planted last fall. It's thriving:
The slow progress of Agave parrasana:
This one isn't ready to bloom. Look at those leaf impressions. Gorgeous plant:
Lots of red in the flowers:
Not in bloom, but a Leucophyllum zygophyllum 'Cimarron' caught my attention. This is more compact than the typical Leucophyllum and vulnerable to root rot, but what a silvery beauty.
There are the Agave parrasanas from the other direction. Yuccas blooming in the back ground.
Aloe framesii, not in bloom, but the rose-tinged foliage is alluring.
Ponder the size of those bamboo clumps in the distance:
One of the smallest Beaucarnea recurvatas in the Desert Garden, but hardly small.
An unexpectedly cool July day enabled us to linger.
A cool, overcast summer day: what joy!
