A neighbor recently invited me down to shoot some pictures of the blossoms on a barrel cactus he’s had since it was a seedling.  These were the first blossoms on this particular cactus.  It’s 35 years old.  Desert gardens take patience!


However mean your life is, meet it and live it. ~ Henry David Thoreau
