Plants are still blooming all over our section of the Chihuahuan Desert. The Strawberry Pitaya Cactus flowers (Images 1, 2, and 3) are not fully blossomed yet, but they will be in a few days. They are among the most beautiful desert flowers. The first time I ever saw one was outside the visitors center in Big Bend National Park. Don't get me talking about Big Bend. We used to go down there twice a year for many years in a row. Haven't been for quite a while now.
