I grew up in the Arizona desert and love cactus over any other types of plants. Each is very unique and tends to have amazing flowers that live for a very short time. On some cacti, you have to be very quick to see the flower as they can open, bloom, and die in just a few hours. Some only bloom at night so you have to go out and look at the flower only in the moonlight. Agaves, like the one in the bottom right of the photo, are one of my favorites and I have over 22 agaves in my yard. I have grown many of them up from pups. The large blue agaves are truly striking. In the days to come I will post photos of some of them.
