Cactus Monday Love in the Air!

Tonight my son, daughter and grandson all went for a walk after dinner, and we went to the end of the street where a cactus garden resides! It is kept by the owner of a shop (beauty shop) a few blocks away from my house at the end of the street, over looking a lake. In the top picture I used no flash, and you can really see the close up image, which was the lovely large prickly pear...and palm front hanging down...

And with the flash, you can see the far away, like the lights out over the water, and boats at the dock just outside of the cactus garden. It was really a beautiful scene...and rather cool and breezy out, which made me exceedingly happy to be alive and in the presence of all this love...I am so grateful.

I am so glad you get to wallow in your families love. No better thing to do.

Happy Cactus Monday. I thought of you when I was at Lowes yesterday and saw all of their succulent and cacti were on sale.

I love those moments that remind us of how much of a gift it is to be alive :) I am glad you like the cards. I should be re-opening my shop soon.

It's lovely Julie. Isn't it great to be alive surrounded by love? I am pretty high on it all myself.

Great photos! Enjoy your family while they stay--I certainly enjoy company more now than when I was younger.

I understand the feeling. Sometimes you are so overwhelmed with the beauty around that you just can't thank god enough for this life and for everything he has created. The scene in the second photograph is stunning.
