Cactus Monday and a pretty flower!
I thought of Marianne, when I looked at this photo on screen! It looks like something she would feature in one of her gorgeous mandalas!!! To all of you who know and love her, I ask you..."Doesn't it"??? YES!!! I found it growing around a mailbox a few doors down from my MIL's house! I have no idea what it could be, but boy, is it every purdy!!!
For Cactus Monday, I found one in Shreveport, in the form of a decortive plate on the wall. I didn't see any cactus outdoors there, nor did I see any at all at the Lowes there. (I did enjoy walking throught their garden center though...they carry flowers we simply do not grow here...and that in itself was such a glorious time to see...things like cone flowers, and frilly things like snapdragons)! Gorgeous!
This plate was one in a series she bought many many years ago. (Sorry it turned out so darn blurry). One of the other plates was missing and she said it had fallen and cracked. I meant to look at the back of the plates to see who made them and try and locate a new plate for her (I forgot to look before I left, but will have my SIL check it for me). Anyway...Happy Cactus Monday to all!
