Through the wonders of irrigation, even in a year of drought, like this one, the desert can bloom. At the Desert Museum in Tucson, one of my favourite places, , that has been shown.
Flowers can bloom in the desert if they are given a boost of water.
The Museum is different from most. Almost everything in it is found outdoors. It is located right next to Saguaro National Park, dedicated to the Saguaro cactus found only in the Sonoran Desert.
The Century Plant is highly unusual, but beautiful in its own way.
In fact with care the desert can even bloom Hoepners. Of course it can’t make Don smile. That would be asking for too much.
