Cactus Flower

These were blooming in my backyard the other day, and it's one of the few things pretty in that large backyard, even though it is ephemeral.

    1. Thank you, Joelle. Paris is so beautiful. It sounds extra cold this year. I once went to Paris in March and the flowers were actually blooming, but maybe that was a warm year. I think it was 1989.

  7. Pretty flower :-) Our spring flowers are just starting to break through the soil - but we're supposed to be getting a snowstorm here on Friday, so they'll probably crawl back into the ground!

    1. Thank you, Jax. That must be tiring. Here it is the 90s. It will soon be too hot 100s +. Our worse time is June through September.
