Cactus Monday!

Yesterday my grandson (Donovan)and I went for an adventure walk around the neighborhood, and he got to discover coconut trees! He wanted to be a monkey under them!

Here is what is happening with the cut down prickly pear tree...it is coming back vigorously!

Then we discovered a few friendly faces in the trees!


Then we walked back home to find a blissful baby (Emily June) in the arms of her Daddy!

Happy Cactus Monday everyone!

What a wonderful walk you and Donavan took together. I love all the discoveries, especially those funny faces on the trees. What did he make of those I wonder?

And that baby's smile. OMGOD. Such bliss.

I think this is the first time I've seen a Indian Fig coming back this way after a radical pruning. Those pads look so tender!
Cute grandkids!
