  4. Hello Maam,

  5. much of California certainly has the right to sing a dirge.

  6. New word for me (thredony)! Had to look it up! I can see why that cactus got called ‘teddy bear’ cactus, but even with a cute name, I wouldn’t try to touch it!

  7. The desert may be unforgiving to many an animal or plant. However the hardy cacti needs only a little rain to thrive – but not too much to flood the sunny desert valley. It is quite a cute fella but do not hug this as you would a teddy bear…

  8. The sky colours are such a beautiful “umbrella” over this beautiful scene.

  9. Good job, Yes, pretty and magical words, wonderful composition. I love that desert plant!

  10. I shal not lament my visit MMT 😉

  11. Beautiful shot of one of my favorite landscapes! Love the desert!

  12. I have visited some deserts but never seen a cactus like this. Great one to shape shadows. 🙂

  13. WOW! look at that sky, have a nice Sunday

    much love…

  14. Looks like it never goes cold out there, always sunny and warm!

    Have a great week ahead!
