No one ever told me that prickly pear cactus bloom the most spectacular flowers I’ve ever seen. I was in jaw dropping awe! Fireman’s kinda kooky Uncle had prickly pear in his Illinois garden. I wonder now, if this is why! Maybe he wasn’t so kooky! I may have to try to grow them here for their flower displays. Has anyone tried who does not live in the desert?
I did, finish the baby hat last night. Two things to note in this photo: the waterfalls were popping up all over after many inches of morning rain on Thursday. And I am bringing the new glasses back to Walmart. They have a fantastic 6o day return policy for any reason. The nose piece broke on day 3 of vacation. My hearing aids and the ear part of the frames didn’t fit well together and made my ears hurt. But how about that policy?
Because of the rain and unusually cool temps for May in Zion Natl Park, we were treated tomany wildflowers blooming in the desert valley.
These lovelies were one of my favorite blooms, AFTER that cactus bloom.
This was a lovely trail that we hiked on. I’m thinking it was the Watchman Trail. Giving my KEEN hiking boots an A+. My podiatrist was right, they gave me great support. I had no pain under my big toe AT ALL. Fireman and I loved our hiking socks. We did not get one blister the whole trip! Way to go feet!
Do you have a favorite hike?
