Cactus and Zinc


I love the soft muted colors of this cactus which has been blooming for a month now.


 The foliage blends so well with my zinc watering cans...


Nature sure does present us with unique and unexpected beauty.


Wednesday I am flying south to spend a few weeks with my parents.
Mom is holding her own and will be celebrating her 83rd birthday at the end of the month!
We appreciate your continued prayers.

I hope your week is going well!
:)
