The garden boasts four miles of wonderful hiking trails, conservatories, and ponds, just to name a few of the attractions. During my visit, I was able to tour a portion of the gardens, and it was really gorgeous.
Upon entrance, I took notice of several types of Cacti, the website states there are hundreds, in fact; I was most intrigued by the cacti with blooms or ones of interesting color.
Gorgeous blooms of a Yucca.
Lovely pink petals of a Easter Lily Cactus, with buds that are just opening.
Wonderful purple. Echinocereous Stramineus (No common Name).
I love the vibrant color and delicate blooms of this Coral Yucca.
I found the flowers of the Twistpine "Prickly Pear" quite interesting, they almost emulate roses.
Speaking of roses, one of my favorite areas of the tour was the extensive rose garden. I could sit here for hours taking in the sweet aroma of the beautiful flowers, of which there were over 300 types!
