2008 – Arizona in Spring

HSCSS member Ann Tansey and her husband experienced “cactus and succulent heaven” during their April trip to Arizona. The two visited the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix and Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Superior, where they saw both familiar and unfamiliar plants representing the desert ecosystem. From opuntias and ocotillos to mammillarias and echinopsis, many plants and wildflowers were in bloom along the trails.
