Neighborhood iPhone Photography

It’s been perfect weather for walking, so I’ve been walking my neighborhood instead of driving anywhere. It’s kind of hard to believe that tomorrow’s weather will be one hundred percent different with rain showers and slightly cooler temperatures.

I’ll Make You Bleed!

Before heading home from Calico Basin today, I spotted this Buckhorn Cholla at the edge of the parking area near my truck. It’s a great looking plant, I’ve seen some very large plants like this one in my desert travels. These spines are deadly sharp, you don’t dare touch this plant!

Desert Spoon

The Desert Spoon is a great choice for accenting your home landscape or around businesses. The home I owned here with the ex had several of these plants around the property. I recommend wearing very thick gloves and shirts when pruning the plant as its thorns are many and very close together, ouch!

The Lone Saguaro

This big and tall fella was parked in a roundabout at Sunset Park the other day. The Saguaro cactus seems to do very well here in Las Vegas regardless of this desert not being it’s native habitat. For that matter, every palm tree here in Las Vegas  is also not a native specie either. This has pissed off a group of people but guess what? Good luck getting them removed, folks. This must be yet another crazy group of tree huggers pissing and moaning…
