This is the time of year when things in our yard begin a magical display. So much fun! My favorite cactus is in bloom. These blossoms are big - about the size of my hand, and they are short-lived. Usually, they only last one day. But what they lack in longevity they make up for in grandeur.
Oh, and they smell divine!
|The two fuzzy looking balls I focused on here are future blossoms!|
Needless to say, I didn't get too much painting done while M was here, so this week will be all about going back to work in the studio.
