Dyed eggs with my three grandchildren. It’s trite, but they do grow up so fast!
Some of the palo verdes in the wash behind my house have turned yellow. One of mine is now in flower. The tiny backyard is looking beautiful. A friend gave me a yucca and two prickly pear cuttings to fill in around the huge barrel cactus and rocks (see photo).
There is 18″ of 1/4” welded wire wrapped around the backyard wrought iron fence, and I assumed, when I planted a vegetable garden in a corner of the yard, that no rodents would get in. Then I spied a rabbit, frantically trying to get out, until he realized that I was watching him through the window, and he froze. When I went out to open the gate to shoo him out, he was gone, and a dent in the top of one section of the welded wire. He was so scared that he didn’t eat anything!
I enjoy seeing neighbors’ yards in bloom when I walk to the mailbox. My next-door neighbor has this cactus in a pot, where it’s happily blossoming in fuchsia. Orange flowers on a cactus down the street. And this purple prickly pear is squeezed between an ocotillo and a saguaro. My own prickly pear flowers.
Can’t remember what I was looking for when I found Erwin Wurm’s One-Minute Sculptures on the Net. Check out all three websites – there are lots more.
