Watch the

dancing cactus

move,  oh

so smoothly and

del-i-cate-ly

wrap its

slender arms

around itself

in a graceful

stance;

 

striking  a

prickly pose

in joyous

succulent

CELEBRATION !

 

See the

baby bumps

swell with

ecstatic

pride

as mama

showcases

a brief

(but glorious)

shrill and frilly

jazz trumpet solo!

    I enjoy cacti–of which there are many here in the desert. You’ve taught me that it’s worth while to look a bit closer.

    This brought me some smiles this morning – mama and babes. Curling flowers and beauty short lived. Well done!

    Cacti definitely are beautiful to behold….and especially when they bloom, they are worthy of a celebration for sure.
