In April 2014, we camped in Big Bend National Park after some heavy spring rains. Those April showers made everything bloom! On impulse we picked up a field guide, Plants of the Chihuahuan Desert by Jennete Jurado, and went hunting for flowers. In this post are the blooming succulents that we found (non-succulents next).
Behold! Every blooming cactus we could find!
