Cholla Blooming Season

We're starting to see some lovely cholla blooming in the region!

The tree cholla is common in our Chihuahuan Desert landscape, and often is the only green plant around.  It generally grows between 2,000 and 7,000 feet.  After the plant dies, the long branches dry and reveal a skeleton-like cane.
