Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument March 3-4. We never saw so much green desert. Millions of buds on Brittlebush nearing bloom. Millions of poppies growing. However, not much blooming on these visited dates. There were a few fields of poppies several hundred feet off the Ajo Mt. Loop and the North Puerto Blanco Drive. Also a very few orange mallow and other flowers. Our prediction is that there will be massive blooms in about 10 days.
