Love the pictures and the title.At least it looks warm there...
These are great. You definitely have to click them large to see all the detail.
K: Cholla are prickly suckers. It was fairly nice then.DFP: Thanks. Not bad for a point & shoot. Sorry I didn't make them larger.
PRICKLY!! But very interesting. And since we're expecting single digits here today, quite warm-looking!!
Cholla is one of my very favorite cacti. Teddy Bear cholla makes it look like one's photos are blurry.Ellie
DeeMarie: I feel for all of you up north. I wish I could send sunshine in the mail. You'd get a big ole box.Ellie: I know. For the longest time I kept thinking that the photos were blurry.
WOW! Those look fierce!
I love cactus!!! Thanks for spreading warmth thru your blog today. I need a good dose of warm thoughts to get thru this frigid weather we are having.I keep chanting "Arizona, cactus, warmth"! Over and over. And ...yes! My kids do look at me strange! LOL And ...I took the dare and posted about my pantry!
Nice shots! I haven't been to the U.S. Southwest in about 20 years -- I miss the desert.
I will not hug it here or there, I will not hug it anywhere.I will not hug it in the dark, I will not hug it with a lark.
CCG: They are on top of the fact that they break off into little pieces and seem to jump right on you.Kath: I cam, I saw, I admired.Beth: This time of year the desert is great.
Yes, one of these "jumped" on me when I first came to AZ in '99. It was a painful welcome but I've been here for 10 yrs and love it!
Very prickly stuff.Loved your comment on my animal rights post. LOVE, LOVE, LOVED it.Blessings,Lacy
ha...do not hug.I've been hugged so much this week I want to learn how to grow some of those so people will leave me the hell alone!!!
That title is right on the money. First thing I thought.
We actually have cactus (cacti?) up here too, only they are very small and like to eat tires.
I loved this. When we come to Arizona I want to visit. The Mayo Clinic has a lovely garden there. I walked it lots when Terry was at the Clinic for his thryoid problems.Terry's brother lives in Gilbert so maybe I will get to see this in real life sometime.Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/
So it's a 27-Word Day....but the pictures were great.
Joshua Tree is funky. I drove through the park once. The word that springs to mind is forlorn but interesting. Nice pics little lady.
Who says WW has to be wordless. I mean, besides the title and all. Very cool pictures and I will not try to hug.
Just what I needed on a freezing winter night. Thanks, Michele!
