Photo: Cactus Flower After Rain

Here is a vibrant cactus flower from my backyard right after the last rain storm.

Many of you have asked about the dust storm we had in this area two weeks ago. We were in Costa Rica so we missed the experience but had to deal with the aftermath of dust very deep everywhere.

The layers of dirt in the pool have taken a full two weeks to get out of the pool.

The yard and plants and truly everything have layers of dirt on them. the you tube videos of the bizarre sandstorm are so unique and well captured. I have never heard of anything thing like this and have lived here my whole life.

The floral of your area is so different from here in the Northeast. I see so much on these blogs.

It is good that you took your flower photo after a rain and not after a dust storm. I am in favor of being in Costa Rica during every dust storm in Arizona.

It always amazes me that something so delicate can be part of a cactus. Beautiful!

Gorgeous, Julie! I wonder what the cactus look like.
Regarding the sandstorm, well, the images were scary! I've only seen it in photos or documentaries in african countries like Niger or Chad.

Yes the rain is welcomed after a dust storm and we did not get much over here so we had to use a lot of rain coming out of the hose instead...
