This is my Organ Pipe cactus. In an upcoming blog I will share how its loyal, powerful blooms are used for protection.🌵😍
Thank you @analisarva for the Organ Pipe Cactus and Aloe Vera plants! I finally potted them 😍. #organpipecactus
Look at this organ pipe cactus! I didn’t go near it just sat on this nice rock 😆 #guineapigsoninstagram #hbdoesamerica #organpipecactus #arizona
Продолжаю тему любимых кактусов! 🌵 . Всем знакомы сагуаро, кактусы с руками, а в пустыне Юма, которая является частью огромной пустыни Сонора, ещё растут кактусы орган пайп - organ pipe cactus - или трубы органа. Именно на трубы главного церковного музыкального инструмента кактусы и похожи. . Местные называют этот кактус сладкой питайей. Плоды кактуса очень вкусные и знакомы всем, кто бывал в Юго-Восточной Азии. Там, правда, эти фрукты называются драгонфрут. И лично я их обожаю! . Прямо на границе с Мексикой - листайте карусельку, чтобы увидеть эту самую границу! - в южной Аризоне рядом с городом Ахо расположен национальный памятник Орган Пайп Кактус, который также является Биосферным заповедником ЮНЕСКО. . На территории парка много гор, среди которых кактус как раз хорошо растет, есть отличный кемпинг. Лично нам очень нравится это место, и мы уже два раза там бывали. . Одна из особенностей визита в Орган Пайп Кактус - это проверка по пути назад. Обычно приходится останавливаться два раза, чтобы показать документы и дать время на проверку автомобиля. Что делать делать, близко граница, нелегалы пытаются проникнуть в США. . Однажды американский пограничник спросил нас: а вы что тут делаете? Мы отвечаем: кактусы приехали смотреть. Он серьезно изучает документы, а потом улыбается: ах да, у вас же в России нет таких больших кактусов, проезжаете! . А кактусы в самом деле большие. Они могут вырасти до 5 метров! Да и возраст у них почтенный. Взрослым растение считается только после 150 лет жизни. А после 35 лет у них появляются цветы 🌼🌼🌼 . Вот собственно ради цветов кактусов сладкой питайи, я думаю, мы приедем сюда снова, когда будем путешествовать по Калифорнии и Аризоне весной, в мае и июне.
Look how little my mom looks next to that organ pipe cactus?! Wheres @dbintyz ?! #OrganPipeCactus #NationalMonument

Recorded bats last night in order to count the lesser long-nosed bat population at Organ Pipe Cactus. Our colony has around 50,000 bats, and they help pollinate the Organ Pipe Cactus flowers at night. Neat experience having stealthily bats flying around your head for hours in the dark. #findyourpark #organpipecactus #bats #arizonasunset #sunset #parkrangerlife
Last night the organ pipe cactus bloomed. That’s a big deal. You know why? Cause they produce their first flower at the age of 35. . . . They only bloom at night and the white bloom lasts for less than 24 hours. So with that said, I felt they deserved a few more days of gracing me with their presence. Like Irving Penn said - “My preference is for flowers considerably after they have passed the point of perfection, when they have already begun spotting and browning and twisting on their way back to the earth.” . . . #organpipecactus #cactusbloom #cactus #blooms #wabisabi #storiedobjects #sabi #onlyinthesonorandesert #sonorandesert #arizona #quote #irvingpenn #decayedbeauty #distressedfx
110f degrees out and our organ pipe cactus decides it’s time to bloom. First time flower. Love the desert. The temp, not so much. #organpipecactus #firstbloom #loveourgarden #deserttough #hotashelloutside
Can it get anymore beautiful?! Overnight blooming leaves you with the best morning surprises ❤️🌵😌👌🏻 #plantlady #crazyplantlady #cactus #cactusfreak #succulents #blooms #nighttimebloom #organpipecactus

Look closely. Look again. The sights and sounds of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, an International Biosphere Reserve, reveal a thriving community of plants and animals. Human stories echo throughout this desert preserve, chronicling thousands of years of desert living. A scenic drive, wilderness hike or a night of camping will expose you to a living desert that thrives.
Since I’m almost done making a matching skirt and top set out of the same cactus print (but a different color) I thought I’d post another shot of this wonderful 1940s wrap dress. I had such fun at the Save the Planet party at the Sonoran Desert museum; can we do it again? 🌵 . . . #1940s #vintagedress #cactusobsessed #cactusprint #sonorandesertmuseum #flexiclogs #1940sdress #housedress #vintagestyle #arizonababe #desertlover #desertbeauty #organpipecactus
The wonderful world of cacti #barrel #beehive #cholla #bonkerhedgehog #pricklypear #santarita #nightbloomingcereus #organpipecactus and the king of the desert #carnegieagigantea #saguaro #🌵 #cactus #desert #tinashouse Un cactus suaviza mis yemas con su piel Tiene cien años, solo florece una vez En tu nombre, en tu nombre. Y tiene un veneno más amargo que la hiel Con solo invocarte, voy a convertirlo en miel En tu nombre, en tu nombre. Y cuando te busco no hay sitio en donde no estés. Y los médanos, serán témpanos en el vértigo, de la eternidad Y los pájaros, serán árboles En lo idéntico, de la soledad. En tu nombre, en tu nombre #gustavocerati
Mexican Organ Pipe Cactus 🌵 Stenocereus pruinosus #organpipecactus #firstbloom #forbiddenfruit
The Stenocereus Pruinosus (Grey Ghost Organ Pipe Cactus). Each stem is grey green, the new growth often bearing a distinctive bloom. This led to its unusual common name, Grey Ghost Organ Pipe Cactus. Like all cacti, this requires little water. It is extremely popular, and is perfect as a feature plant for your home.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #greenindoor #greengarden #evergreen #alcantarea #houseplant #palms #plantlife #designlife #greenpower #indoorplants #interiordecor #houseplants #plantlover #cactus #organpipecactus
The organ pipe cactus. Only found in a small part of Arizona and well into Mexico. #organpipecactus #organpipenationalpark #sun #instagramaz #arizona #sonorandesert #explorearizona #cactus #beon12 #fox10 #abc15

The Saguaro cactus is an iconic symbol of the desert and the American Southwest. But they only grow natively in the Sonoran Desert, and more specifically in Southern Arizona, a small section of Southern California and areas within the Mexican state of Sonora. No, these cacti do not grow in Texas like pop culture may make us believe. // 5.29.18 // Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Arizona // . . . . . #arizona #exploreAZ #explorearizona #travelarizona #nps #organpipecactus #grandcanyonstate #saguaro #sonorandesert #travel #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #publiclands #roadtrip #getoutside #beautifuldestinations #nationalparkservice #wanderlust #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #fatalframes #canon #liveauthentic #lonelyplanet #sonoran #desert #explore #folkscenery #sunset @usinterior @nationalparkgeek @nationalparkservice @organpipenps @folkscenery @folkgreen @visit_arizona @arizonahikersguide @arizona_hiking
I always thought, “wouldn’t that be awesome if we saw one of those 🌵 while in Arizona? You know, the one with arms?” Who knew they were all over the place!” ...probably everyone but me, right? . We used the fourth night free perk from Citi Prestige to score four nights at Homewood Suites in Happy Valley. It’s a perfect location only a few minutes from this shot.
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument on the U.S.-Mexico border in Southern Arizona is the only place in the United States where the organ pipe cactus pictured here grows wild. Also, those mountains in the distance are in Mexico. // 5.29.18 // Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Arizona // . . . . . #arizona #exploreAZ #explorearizona #travelarizona #nps #organpipecactus #grandcanyonstate #organpipe #sonorandesert #travel #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #publiclands #roadtrip #getoutside #beautifuldestinations #nationalparkservice #wanderlust #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #fatalframes #canon #liveauthentic #lonelyplanet #sonoran #desert #explore #folkscenery #sunset @usinterior @nationalparkgeek @nationalparkservice @organpipenps @arizona_hiking @arizonahikersguide @arizonaroamers @visit_arizona @folkgreen @folkscenery
Interesting fact: The cactus wren makes its home in saguaros by constructing a nest to incubate its 🥚 eggs. It’s also the state bird of Arizona.

“Doorway to History in Alamo Canyon” ~~~ This is the abandoned historic house in Alamo Canyon set in the Ajo Range in southern Arizona. There is a great trail to this location and is one of the gems in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. I really love sauntering in this region during the mid winter months.
