Waiting out Summer...

Our Monsoon season has pretty much fizzled out this year. We had one week of rainy days, and even those didn't live up to expectations.  I water water water, but do little else outside, and look forward to cooler temps and more garden time. The best is just ahead! The cactus blooms are slowing a bit but there is still something blooming almost every day. Here are some cactus blooms from the last week or so.


And sometimes, after the flowers come fruit. I tasted these and they are pretty tangy little fruits. The birds usually get them before I can snap a picture.
Happy Cactus Monday- to see other artwork and photography with a prickly theme please visit. Teri's Painted Daisies!

How neat to have all those cactus blooms! They are just so soft and unusual, aren't they? Soft flowers on such seemingly hard cactuses! Love the contrast. Happy Cactus Monday!

What gorgeous blooms on your cactus. If I lived where I didn't have to bring in cactus I would have a whole lot more of them. These blooms say it all. Those little fruits are quite pretty too. I wonder if you could make jelly out of them?? Happy CM.
