Cactus on Monday's Country Back Roads
"Wow" is what I said, when I first saw a pasture covered with these blooming cacti.
Over the week end I traveled some country back roads just to the north of my home. My plans for Saturday were to attend the Texas Draft Horse and Mule Association Harvest and Plow Day. I will be posting about this event later in the week.
Directly below this delicate flower lies the prickly spines of the cactus.
It was a rather warm day with temperatures reaching in the 90's. The bees were buzzing....
It has been a day of shock and sadness as I have watched the news of the devastating tornadoes in Texas' neighboring state of Oklahoma.
Please remember the Oklahomans in your prayers.....
