Cactus Monday

Happy Cactus Monday!

Strawberry Hedgehog Cactus (Echinocereus engelmannii)

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, 
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, 
if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, 
Rejoice, for your soul is alive.
~ Eleanora Duse

    Candy: this was a good test! I had to remember how the heck I added my Flickr photostream. In Blogger, go to Design and Add a Gadget. You'll see the normal options, but there are additional choices on the far left. Choose "Featured" and then select Flickr Photostream. You'll be given the setup screen to enter your Flickr ID and a few other options. (And we are now Flickr friends - nice to meet you!)
