It's that time of year

It's hard to call it Spring

since that title elicits visions of tulips and weeping cherry,

rain and cool temperatures.

That's what I knew most of my life.

Not this...few short weeks

before the days of SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION
(AKA: May through October)

But it IS 'sort of' Spring right now.

The cactus,

unapproachable

and downright dangerous looking 10 to 11 months of the year,

SUDDENLY

pop out these most amazing and delicate flowers you've ever seen!

This beauty is in the front yard.

A cheerful send off each morning on the way to the DOD

Cactus do have some of the most beautiful, delicate flowers. Just be careful when you bend down to smell it!
Happy weekend,

The way the something spiny and too dangerous to touch can turn out the most beautiful flowers is always amazing!
