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!
