My favorite find so far this year. The last time Salvia henryi was collected from Tortugas Mountain was by E. O. Wooton in 1894. I collected it again from presumably the same population 124 years later.

If we get some rain any time soon, these strawberry hedgehog cacti will have tons of 6-inch neon flowers. I haven't seen one in flower yet, but it should be surreal when it happens. (Echinocereus stramineus)
