Blessings Friday: Mother Nature’s Decorations

My husband and I are leaving in a few minutes to catch a flight to Los Angeles for the weekend. Before I leave, I want to share a few photos I took of Mother Nature’s decorations here in Tucson.

Prickly Pear cactus (Case Natural Resource Park)

Cholla cactus (Case Natural Resource Park)

Butterfly Iris (my backyard)

There are tiny fruit babies growing on mama plants in my backyard--what wonderful symbols to honor Mother’s Day.

Have a very blessed weekend!

Have a wonderful trip!
Such beautful flowers!
My husband adores prickly pears as they remind him of southern Italy where he was born.
Hugs, Pat

Is there anything more beautiful than a cactus in bloom? They can rival any rose I know. We have the prickly pear up here, but she doesn't bloom until early June.

Love your beautiful desert.
