Gorgeous, gorgeous flowers! Thanks for sharing the pictures. Cacti sorta fascinate me. The idea of them being wild in the neighborhood fascinates me even more.

So far today we've had snow, rain, thunder, lightening, hail, and now it's sunny. We're never real warm up here, but the variability has it's benefits (I guess) Right now, I would love to lay in the sun.

Toni, Oh how I envy your weather and blooms! Yesterday and today were the first real nice days we have had so far. I don't have anything blooming yet. Our snow has only been gone about a week. I really like how you've changed your blog the background and banner. It looks great! Sue

I love flowers, and I love your photos although does make me kinda jealous, we are still in rain mode here. A few buds on the trees though so hopefully soon my lovely lilacs will come!

Thanks so much for the breath of fresh air! We are just getting started here, and are in such a severe drought, there's not much green!

Wow, I love these photos! Sometimes it's so hard to realize that it is spring somewhere else, and your vegetationin Arizona is so different than ours! I love your comment on my post! It still makes me laugh! I have never been to ostrich races, they must be hysterical. You are such a bright light! Have a great week, Roxanne
