Cactus Monday done by a friend!

It's a really good friend who, while having an Easter lunch at the beach with her family, puts together an idea for Cactus Monday for me! She took a large seagrape leaf and drew a cactus outline on it, and arranged some pretty wildflowers found at the beach park today. The she took pictures and e-mailed them to me!!! Thankyou, Karen!!! You are the best!!! Happy Cactus Monday to you all!

Isn't that sweet that your friend did that for you...always thinking about you. I hope you had a good Easter. I'm loving your grandbaby pictures...with their little eggs..so adorable.

Yes Geoff is my eldest son and Madeline is his daughter. That was a nice compliment..*s*.. The other one at the table is my youngest son Richard.

Thank you for sharing...

Julie you won't believe this but I thought this leaf was a slice of HAM with a fancy grill mark on it!!!!!! Where is my BRAIN???

I'm still laughing!
HCM!!!

Oh, I have a beautiful hanging succulent in my yard that I want to photograph so maybe you can tell me what it is. It has grey/green foliage and tiny purple blossoms. Do I have your email address?
